Has anyone seen Baltimore’s Book Thing?
I want to do this here in Atlanta! Seriously… I think it wouldn’t take much more time than I already spend obsessing about books. I mostly spend Saturdays either at yard sales, used book stores or cleaning and documenting my books. I can see this being just an additional “whoopee!”
I’m thinking about calling my favorite little coffee house near my home and seeing if they’d mind me setting up a “free book” shelf. My sign would have to say something like:
No, really. They’re free.
Yes, seriously. Take the book! Take 5 books! Let your kids take books!
No, we don’t want a donation.
All we ask is don’t throw them away.
I think this could work… but now I’m going to have to get over this fear of talking to people. 😉
