Pass It On…..
For me selecting a good book to read is a pastime. I enjoy being a book browsers and picking my next story very carefully. After finishing a good read I always wonder if someone would love the book as much as I have. I think there are two ways of passing on the enthusiasm for a story.
Book clubs seem to be a new social activity for the 21st century reader. There are clubs in libraries, village halls and many cafes. There are also online clubs that appear in our blogging world, convenient and accessible to many readers. These clubs provide the chance to talk and see other’s opinions on a story.
The second way is to pass on a loveable read at a mini book exchange. I found one in a village nearby. This old telephone box is used to drop off used books and to take a book in return. The villagers and regular users of the exchange keep the box well stocked. I love the idea of passing books forward for someone else to enjoy. It is a wonderful act of kindness to give someone else the opportunity to travel, imagine and go on an adventure with the book you have passed on for free.
