I found myself spring cleaning today, okay, cleaning my bookshelf and I realized, I had 91 books that I could do away with. As much as I want to donate to an orphanage, local library and the like, it has become too bureaucratic that the appeal has died. Besides, I wanted my books to be owned by someone who loves books as much as I do.
I found myself posting on my wall and the village group about my dilemma and lo and behold, there were people who answered and 2 of them even got to pick the books today. Book lovers really will find a way especially when it comes to free books.
YES, FREE BOOKS. It did not cost them anything to get my books. Why am I giving it away? Well, its just a way of paying it forward for me. Someone gave me a massive amount of books before and I am just forwarding the favor now.
The world could use a little bit of kindness and it doesn't have to be anything grandiose you know. A simple act of kindness can be like a butterfly effect that will spread more good.
I love the smile on these women. They seemed really happy with the books.
Today I decided to let go of some of my books. There were 2 persons who asked if they could adopt them and since they were also booklovers, I said yes. Booklovers + free books = happiness. Please take care of my babies ladies. #bookworm #booklovers #welovebooks #payitforward Bdw, they were perfect strangers who are now acquaintances. Hopefully soon through our common love we will become friends.
