Friday Fun! (Better World Books)

Hello my lovely readers!  I hope your weeks have all been awesome.  My week was fairly busy as per usual.  I baked cookies, made pizza, had a movie marathon with a friend, and was finally forced to put my ac in thanks to the recent surge in temperature in Boston.  My cat is shedding up a storm.  She’s been loving up the extended brushing sessions she’s now getting.  She’s also been showing an intense love for water and getting wet (by repeatedly trying to climb in the shower with me).  She’s an odd duck, and I’m considering giving her a bath to help with the heat/shedding issue.  I’ll let you know if I wind up torn to shreds.

I’m finally finishing up my spring cleaning I started during vacation.  After bringing my weeded books to a local indie then posting to PaperBackSwap, I still had a few left-over.  I was pleased to discover an awesome charity that pays for the shipping so you can donate books at no cost to you–Better World Books.  Basically it’s an online bookstore that uses all their proceeds to benefit worldwide literacy and libraries.  It helps them immensely when their stock is donated.  I know most of my followers are big readers, so I highly encourage you to check them out if you’re weeding or adding to your shelves.  Both activities help out with literacy, and that just makes for a better world all-around.  (Hence the name of the bookstore, I imagine).

My weekend is going to consist of going to see Bridesmaids with a friend, some necessary clothes shopping, and a Team Unicorn gathering.  Happy weekends all!

    I didn’t know that they payed the costs if you donate books! I’ve bought from them a few times. I so ❤ them!

      Yeah, it’s rather awesome! You just print the label free of charge. They’re very cool. 🙂
