BOOK, BOOKS, AND MORE BOOKS

It was a busy first half of the year. Publishers, authors, and a few books I bought made my TO BE READ pile grow to record heights. I read every book and then routed them to the intended middle grade audience.

This includes a nearby school, a public library (who used my donation for their summer reading program), and the occasional giveaway here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE (More giveaways coming up in August). But I still had dozens of books left over. What to do? A book without a reader is one of my pet peeves.

The solution was a neighborhood middle grade book giveaway. It took three hours but every book found a new owner. I couldn’t be happier. My bookshelves are empty!

    Wow! I would have loved this as a kid. What am I saying? I still would love to find this in my neighborhood–books are treasures! Great job sharing your love of books.

    Great idea!

  3. What a grand idea! I donate a lot of books to the Children’s Hospital here and to kids. Used to donate to the library, but they won’t accept them anymore — even when they are a new book.

  4. That’s terrific, Greg. I’ll bet your neighbors were thrilled.

  5. Awesome idea, Greg! What an excellent idea. It may even inspire the recipients of these books to ‘pass them on’ to another friend . . . Thanks for sharing this with us. {Balloons are always good attention-getters! Great sign, too.}
