The little phrase ‘take some love and pass it around’ has been floating around in my mind all day. Perhaps it’s because I find books and love interchangeable?
Thing is, Alessandra Rissotti, Community Director at GOOD, contacted me about recreating my ‘something for nothing’ book project from 2013. 58 GOOD readers participated last summer, and we’re hoping that even more people will get involved for the 2014 project.
Last summer, I left my book collection next to a sign that read “something for nothing: take a book.” This year, I made individual bookmarks that invite strangers to take, read, and share a novel.
The project is simple and sneaky: take your favorite reads out of storage, dust them off, place a bookmark inside, and leave them around town.
A happy surprise for a summer day, right?
Here’s to hoping someone returns the favor.
