This was a blast!

There was a little bit of fear in approaching people to talk to them about the books, but then everyone seemed so happy to get one. I gave them away at the local community college, food pantry, Salvation Army, the farmers market, women’s shelter, and the hospital. I could do this everyday. I hope I’m selected again next year!
