All over the blog-o-sphere you will find book give-aways ... everything from a single book to boxes full of books. Authors give books; bloggers give books; publishers gives books; and so on. But I'm not giving away a book today.
Instead ... I'm asking you to give a book today ... or more specifically:
Give a BOOK to Columbia High School's Library! (please?)
Teenagers need books to read, and the shelves of this library are TOO bare! Help us out and either send me a book (leave your email in the comments below, and I'll send the shipping address to you) or click on the Paypal button to donate $$ for a book (or two).
So, go through your bookshelves or your wallet, and let's make some magic happen for teenage readers! Your support is greatly appreciated.
