Not too long ago, in the comments of some post or another on somepeep’s blog (sorry I can’t remember who!), I came across a link to BetterWorldBooks. They have a huge selection of used and new books, and for each book you buy, they donate a book to a literacy cause. Free shipping! You can also donate your books to them using a prepaid mailer. Now, on the best of days, I have trouble resisting books, but for a good cause and free shipping, I have absolutely no excuse *not* to buy them. Especially since I need to update my kitty children’s book library for Sprocket’s sake. It hasn’t been updated since my brother and I were kittens ourselves.
Today, there is a 50% off bargain bin sale and I bought… several… for Sprocky. And maybe a couple for myself. Now he finally has his own copy of Little Bo. I got him The Great American Mousical in case he or Chun decide to pursue a career on Broadway. A Kitten’s Year is about a new kitten exploring his world, just like Sprocky. Wabi Sabi will help me teach the Miaolings a Zen approach to life – appreciating the beauty of simplicity.
