Authors & Speakers… Help Promote “Books for Treats!”

Filed under: Author Tips,Promotion — Larry James @ 6:00 am

This Halloween… Do something different for your “Tiny Tricksters!”

When they come to your door on Halloween… treat them to some “brain candy!” Feed their mind, not their cavities!

bookfortreatsBooks For Treats” is an ingenious program created by my friend, Rebecca Morgan, California (author and speaker). It encourages parents to recycle their gently used children’s books by giving them out on Halloween instead of candy.

booHow can you participate?

• Pass the link to this article to your author and speaker friends. – – Share it with your Facebook friends and Tweet about it on Twitter! Help us promote this terrific idea!
• Gather gently read children’s books to give out in your neighborhood.
Download our kit to help you sort your books by grade level.
• Volunteer to help (fill out the form on the left)
• Have your company become a sponsor
• Make a donation of any amount through PayPal to We appreciate any funds, as they help us purchase used books, provide PR and ads to get the word out, and keep our web site up to date.
• Talk to your friends, co-workers and neighbors about participating in Books for Treats. Send them a link to this web site.

Whenever I give out books on Halloween I be sure that my business card is in the book to be used as a book mark. 😉 I also have a red stamp that I post at the beginning of the book that says, “Compliments of Larry James,!” I will often drop an additional business card in their candy baskets.

Want to talk to someone about how you can help? Contact Rebecca Morgan, founder and Executive Director. 408-998-7977.
