Recycling Books and Building Bridges

So here's the deal.
We want to reach out and touch people.
Not physically - please keep your mind out of the gutter.
Caroline sent me a book earlier this year and we discussed the idea of sending books out into the great unknown, not like chain letters, but kind of building a larger connectivity with knitters.
So recently she sent me another book and put her name in there.
Because that is what we came up with - own it for a bit and then send it on.
I'm going to read the book, sign my name in it and then send it on to someone else.
It doesn't have to come back to Caroline and it doesn't have to come back to me, but it would be interesting to find out along the way who is reading the book and to whom they are sending it.
This is the book that will be on its way to the next knitter.

Read it and (hopefully) enjoy it - but please don't keep it.
You know, if you love something set it free, blah, blah, blah.
Well let's get this book out there into the world and see how connected we are to each other.
And see where this book travels.
Happy reading!

Yay, Julie! I think it will be fun to see where our books go. I wish I'd written what my favorite story was. Now I can't remember any of them.

Count me in! I'd love to send books out in the world.
