Can you write books without loving them? I would argue no. Definitely no.
If you scroll down my blog you will find a link to The Literacy Site, where, if you click, sponsors pay for books to go to children in need. I keep that link of up all the time, ever since I found it on Cathy's blog, Kittling Books.
Coffee Rings Everywhere posted yesterday about a unique opportunity to make a difference. In her words, "BlogHer and BookRenter have joined forces, and from May 3-28, are working to make a difference in children's lives by generating new books for children who need them most -- via the nonprofit organization First Book.
"For every person who leaves a comment here answering the question, What book has had the greatest impact on your life?, they will donate one book to a child in need. If you blog about the contest and link to the site, an additional book would be donated." (I even stole the title from her!)
I still have that book and will pass it on to one of my children someday. It's not a first edition or even a big hard copy. It's just important to me.
What book means something to you? What do you do (or will you do) to make sure others have that same opportunity?
