When i was first learning how to scrim, I was doing my practice pieces on seashells. Then Mike and I would drive to the coast and I would leave the shells on the beach for people to find.
One shell I did had a whaling ship on it, and we placed it in the sand then went off some distance and casually looked that way. This elderly gentleman came along with his dog, bent over to pick up the shell, looked at it a couple of times and then hugged it to his chest and walked away. It was a pretty cool feeling to have given someone something like that. I did about 8 shells in the course of the year and I wonder sometimes where they all are now.
I hope that when I leave a book for someone to find, they treat it with the respect it deserves.

Thanks for posting this Hissy, I definately have a ton of books that I no longer need. I also have quite a few books that I would never ever even think of parting with! LOL
Our local library is also looking for used books. They will take any book they can get a hold of. Unfortunately, most small town libraries are always looking for books to be donated as the monies provided to small town libraries is little next to none.
For those people on the site who have books, think about donating them to your local library. One day a child might thank you!
