Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Every month, hundred of troops and civilians load up on planes for *very* long plane rides across the ocean. Before they load up, they are given the opportunity to browse a couple of book cases in the Commander's office and to choose a book to take with them.
The pickings are getting slim.
I cleaned out my book cases at home and sent a bunch to help stock the shelves. (Oddly enough, chick lit wasn't a huge hit with the world travelers.)
So here's my pitch...Read any good books lately? Wanna donate some to the cause? Leave a comment or e-mail me and I can let you know more.
Spread the word.
(Bonus son is planning on doing a book drive for his Eagle Project later in the year, but they need some now.)
