Saw this mini library on a walk in my neighborhood. The materials it was made from matched the house of the yard it was in. What a great idea! There was everything in the box from R.L. Stine’s famous YA novel series “Goosebumps” to a book entitled “Egonomics”, the name of an interesting psychological theory. I fished a copy of a James Patterson novel from the box, and thought about the book exchange the rest of the walk.
I concluded that on a macro level libraries will never die, if people continue to put them in places like this. On a micro level, I can’t wait to do some guerrilla marketing when my novel is in print. Also, I am excited to contribute some books to the exchange. Because isn’t that the second best part of writing and reading? Sharing words with others?
