Yesterday was March 31st, and it was a glorious day in my part of the upper Midwestern United States…approaching 60F (today it snowed!) Weather aside, it was also the last day for me to capitalize on the Half Price Books Half Pint Library Book Drive (HPBHPL?! Hardly an acronym that flows off the tongue is it?). In the month of March, Half Price Books was matching all donations of new and gently used children’s books which will be distributed to qualifying local non-profit organizations this weekend. Of course, never one to be too hasty, I let the entire month slip away from me, so MiniMe and I had to haul a** to bring our donations in yesterday afternoon.
In addition to the books we featured here during the SpReAd the Love Challenge, Mini Me also cleaned out her bookshelves so that our total number of books donated was 24. With Half Price Books matching us book for book, that means we helped to put 48 books into the hands of kids in our area. Not a bad days work!
