One of my favorite things growing up was Pizza Hut’s Book It Promotion. If you are not aware of this program, A. You are really young and you missed out on something magical or B. You hate happiness. The Book It Promotion would award younger students who read a certain number of books get awarded with a star. Once a student received 5 stars and filled this really huge pin on button that could be seen from space, that student would receive a personal pan pizza.
Now, as someone who grew up in a town where most restaurants close at 2PM, having a Pizza Hut was a gift from the Gods. For some perspective, the only chain eateries we had at this time was a Sonic and Pizza Hut. When we finally got a McDonalds, we felt like a real town. But Pizza Hut was there to sooth the soul. And when I finally filled that button, that meant Pizza Hut would be dinner that night. A memory that will always cause a smile.
Earlier this week, Pizza Hut announced bringing back its Book It Program this summer with Camp Book It! The new program would allow parents to sing up their children ages (4-12) for the program that will take place over the summer.
However, that being said, I have a question for Pizza Hut. Can we please get Book It for adults? Look, a personal pizza for most of us is a Large, so make the books adult themed. Instead of 5 books, make 25. I don’t care. I would sit down and read books that I would never pick up in my lifetime for the opportunity to wear that damn button again. I am not writing this because we publish books, https://randomevolved.store, but I am writing this because we all deserve some happiness after the last year of our lives.
So, Pizza Hut….What do you say?
