Picture a Book Changing Lives

August 10, 2010

For each submitted photo of a reader holding Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns (both excellent books), the publisher will donate $2 to the Khaled Hosseini Foundation, up to $25,000.The organization supports humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan–the setting of the books–particularly to women and children.

Submit your photo — you have until August 31. To submit your photo you have to join Penguin’s online community and the Hosseini group, but it takes about 2 seconds. And I bet you can take a better picture than me (with a jacket cover, no less).
