Book Project Gravy Train. I picked books off the shelves and boxed them up. I didn’t have to do any literary dumpster diving. Shit, the books had even been categorized.
The library was quiet because the students have been doing their schoolwork with the aid of on-lone texts. Outside, the snow continued to fall softly. I stopped every so often and leafed through a book. Sometimes, as usual, like when I found a book that really interested me, I gave out a yelp.
I was quiet about it, but I boxed up four boxes of old books – ones that I think will fetch a good price on ebay. I also brought home a few videos. I asked Bill, and he was in agreement with me, that we ought not go the video route. Dog knows what would happen then.
Pete met up with me after his class and put the boxes of books on carts and loaded them into the truck, which he’d parked under the entrance overhang. We dropped off books at the three distribution sites, then took most of the rest to the meeting house. While there, Pete suggested that we add more literature books to the Turkey Red Bookcase. I asked him why and he said this would look nicer.
Hmmm – it’ll be interesting to see if they go or if they continue to sit there.
Books, books, everywhere, and another Saturday sorting coming right up. I would like to have a book sale at the meeting house in the spring. However, with all this snow, spring seems like it’s still a long way away.
