Read It Forward is all about that magical moment when you’re able to connect with another person about a book that you loved, when you can pass it on, when you can – not to get too sentimental – read it forward.
We’d like to invite you to send us a video about your Read It Forward Moment, a time when you read a terrific book and then shared that terrific book with someone – or when someone shared their book with you.
Don’t tell us about the book; tell us about the act of passing it on (okay, maybe tell us a little about the book). This is not a contest, but it is a chance to celebrate your Read It Forward Moment and connect with all your far-flung RIFers across the country and the world.
And so you don’t feel you have to be the first one out on the dance floor, the staffers at RIF are going to go first!

Heather’s Read It Forward book is Lisa See’s Dreams of Joy. (Enjoy more adventures in reading with Heather: check out her visit to Madame Tussaud’s for Michelle Moran’s Madame Tussaud and read about her life as an editor-model hybrid for Jean Plaidy’s book covers.)
In her beloved New York Times bestsellers Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and, most recently, Shanghai Girls, Lisa See has brilliantly illuminated the potent bonds of mother love, romantic love, and love of country. Now, in Dreams of Joy, she returns to these timeless themes, continuing the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls, and Pearl’s strong-willed nineteen-year-old daughter, Joy.
