My very first Joyful Rant post was called Paperbacks and Princesses and it was all about my love of reading and how I am blessed to have three reader-daughters. Two of them (Zoe and Lacey) will be helping me collect books along with my Little Brother Chris, 15, and my Little Sister Destiny, 14, from the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Chris is going to be a great asset because he and his mom, Valerie have done a book drive before! We are gonna be unstoppable!
I'm happy to have Destiny participate too. She and I recently read the "Hunger Games" and "Divergent" Trilogies. We also went to see "Catching Fire" and it was awesome. We're looking forward to seeing the movie version of "Divergent," although I'm still pretty annoyed at the ending of that trilogy (but, I digress, and no spoilers here).
If you want to help us collect these books here is what you can do:
- Look through your house, your closets, your garage and find books
- Tell all your friends to do the same (if they don't have time, offer to look for them, ha!)
- Bring them to Big Brothers Big Sisters at 202 Baltimore, SA TX 78215
- or to my house (text me at 210-382-8671 for address)
- or tell us where we can pick them up from you
