Sharing our love of books is fun
For the second year in a row, we set up our Halloween book give-away and it was exhilarating to see how enthusiastic and appreciative everyone, both children and adults, was when they saw the boxes organized by picture books, middle grade books, young adult, and books for parents. We start collecting books in the summer, purchasing many from book shops in public libraries. One friend loves this idea so much she’s given us three boxes of books both years.
Bill sets up the books. Natalie makes the signs. From our front porch, we could see so many children and adults taking their time choosing a book.
About 500 books went home tonight to new homes. Here are a few fun things we overheard:
“This is so amazing”
“This is so dope!”
“I’m so excited to read this”
“My friend said this is a good author”
And from one mom: “This is my new favorite house.” 🙂
