The Kindle is wonderful on trips; it's ideal, really, don't misunderstand. But the texture of a page as you turn it, the weight of a book in your hand, even the smell (tell me I'm not the only one who enjoys the smell of books)~there's nothing quite like it. It's comforting.
To us, reading is a gift. The joy of reading even moreso. It makes perfect sense, then, that we'd choose todays project. Today my son and I dropped off several bags of gently used books to our local library.
They were for all ages~a little something for everyone~so no one will miss out.
Maybe you know this, maybe you don't, but your libraries are always happy to accept your books. Always. For people who can't afford the luxuries of a Kindle or Nook or even spend money on a simple paperback, it's a gift to them to donate the ones you no longer need. This is a quick way to give annonymously and to so many. I highly suggest if you have tons of books, go through them and pick a few out to bring to your local library.
