Its kind of like a red box..for books....

I have always admired others that can "get lost" in books. I never really made time to read books. While I was pregnant with Saige, I went through a stage that I did things that I thought I would never get to do once I had children, reading was one of them. But of course I read silly books like "The Devil Wears Prada", and the WHOLE series of "Shopaholic.." Books.. Hindsight is 20/20 and now if I could only take back those times and read things that might have taught me a thing or two, instead of different ways to hide from the credit agencies or how fashion RULES THE WORLD, {I do have to say, I DID quite enjoy ever moment!!}.



I came across this post about a community bookshelf in Germany:



You can read about it here.
hey are located a different locations around Germany stocked with donated books. The rule is you take some books and replace them with those you no longer want. How rad would that be? I might even pick-up reading! If I knew that i could just run by, even at 3 am, and trade it for another book, I might make the time to read. It might only truly work in my dream world, that no one would steal/vandalize/ or just plain forget about. But at least someone else out there is giving people a chance to prove that we aren't all that bad.....

peace out

I'm glad you're loving books - I've always been the weird one who couldn't get enough of books... but who has time to read now? You could always go to the library to get more books - that way you don't have to buy them OR worry about vandalism or theft.

Thanks for a fabulous party!

We could start a family bookshelf. Just stash them in the back of our cars. I mostly just have Juvenille fiction. Entertaining but not too enriching. It's a good place to start. And Thanks for a great hunter party. The only one I have ever been to, and I loved every minute. Love you. Love your family!
