How you can celebrate

• Check in to the International Chick Lit Month website every day during May for great posts, book reviews and giveaways.
• If you attend a book club, suggest a chick lit title for their May selection.
• Encourage your local library to set up a display of some of their most popular chick lit books.
• If you have friends who love chick lit too, why not organise a book swap night where you all bring along books you have finished reading, and swap them for new ones.
• If you have a lot of books clogging up your bookshelves or stored in boxes in the garage, maybe it’s time to do a clean-up. You could sell them through a garage sale or donate them to your local charity shop, school or care centre. You could even band together with friends and run a book stall, with the proceeds going to your favourite charity.
• Invite the girls over for a chick flick night. Pick movies that have been adapted from books, such as PS I Love You, Bridget Jones’s Diary, In Her Shoes and Confessions of a Shopaholic.
• Get along to a screening of the new movie Something Borrowed starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson. It’s based on Emily Giffin’s best-selling novel.

We’d love to hear your suggestions.

    Just wanted to let you know that I will be doing a display in my library in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to help celebrate “International Chick Lit Month” and I’ve encouraged some of my fellow library workers to do the same!

    I’m going to give away an ebook copy of my novels for chicklit month. I will link to your blog as well. Fab idea!

    I am going to be publishing a chick lit series on my blog to mark the event. It will start from 1st May so keep your eyes peeled. PS is there a way I can get a banner to place on my blog? I really do want to support this.

    It took forever to get (people kept checking-out the Chick Lit!) but I finally got a picture of the “International Chick Lit Month” display at the Bridlewood Branch of the Toronto Public Library.

    I will email it and maybe it can get posted on the site?
