1000 Books, 1000 Miles Project

by on August 9, 2010

This is a departure from my usual book reviewing/new releases post, obviously, but it’s a good’un! Good’in? Good one. There, that’s better.

Anyway! A patron of our illustrious site brought this to my attention (thanks Rhiannon!) and I just had to share it with you all:

1000 Books, 1000 Miles!

It’s an uplifting tale, I promise! A school library floods in Missouri, a teacher calls for help and another answers… from New Jersey. The end result is one thousand books travelling one thousand miles from New Jersey to Missouri, powered ENTIRELY by volunteers.


I suggest you start with this post and then this one and then keep on readin’! It’s enough to make any book nerd feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
