Little Free Library Delivery – Words

IMG_0441

Today I’ll be dropping off this collection of books at the Little Free Library in front of Arsaga’s at the Depot. If you happen to want any of these three books, just follow me on twitter and look for a tweet that says, “The drop has been made.” Then you can roll on over to the little library and pick them up!

This collection includes:

bigtalk

  • Big Talk: Poems for Four Voices is a really fun way to get your family to read out loud together. Fun for kids and adults too.

rhymingdictionary

  • The Scholastic Rhyming Dictionary is a really fun, kid friendly, dictionary of rhymes for poetic types.

thesaurus

  • Roget’s International Thesaurus is an out of date thesaurus for all of your out of date thesaurus needs – or perhaps the framework for a new upcycled journal project?

Little Free Library Delivery: Fiction

Little Free Library Delivery: Fiction

This afternoon on my bicycle ride to work I’ll be dropping off this collection of books at the Little Free Library in front of Arsaga’s at the Depot. If you happen to want any of these three books, just follow me on twitter and look for a tweet that says, “The drop has been made.” Then you can roll on over to the little library and pick them up!

This collection includes:

practicalcats

  • Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot and illustrated by Edward Gorey. This classic is a staple in my family because my maternal grandmother adored it so much. I have a hard cover copy that she gave me, and there are several other copies in the attic where I got all of these books. The book has poems describing various cats and their personalities and is filled with excellent illustrations of the humanized cats. Great for all ages, especially those in the business of naming their own cats and in need of inspiration.

stranger

  • Stranger In a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlen tells the story of a human raised by martians who comes to Earth from his home planet of Mars. 1960’s science fiction at it’s finest.

  • The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner is the story of the Compson family, and is written in a stream of consciousness style. Good luck.

arabiannights

  • The Arabian Nights translated by Richard Francis Burton is a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales that were compiled in Arabic during the 8th-13th centuries. This edition is illustrated throughout.

Little Free Library Delivery: Religion

IMG_0239

Since I ride my bicycle by the Little Free Library in front of Arsaga’s at the Depot several times a week on my way to and from work, it’s easy for me to keep up with the little library’s stock. It’s clear plexiglass front door means I don’t even have to stop to check out whether there’s room to drop off some books or not. This collection doesn’t need much space though, as it’s just three books. If you happen to want any of these three books, just follow me on twitter and look for a tweet that says, “The drop has been made.” Then you can roll on over to the little library and pick them up!

This trio includes:

religions

  • The World’s Great Religions: This is another book which has it’s inside front cover graced by my grandmother’s name. The book must have been around when my mom was young because her name adorns a back page in purple crayon. Aside from some school library markings from the Anaheim School District and a big scrawl of “I Love You All” in orange pastel on the inside of the front cover, the book is in pristine condition. The whole thing is full of pictures, and covers the basics of many of the world’s religions. An excellent book for young people interested in exploring the world’s great religions!

women

  • The Holy Book of Women’s Mysteries: If, like me, you’re into pagan lady power – then this is the book for you.

kahlilgibran

  • A Treasury of Kahlil Gibran: Apparently this book is no oddity to own. According to an article in the New Yorker, Kahlil Gibran is the third bestselling poet of all time. And, it’s no surprise this collection was in my parent’s attic because it’s hippy lit. So, if you’re into some super classic literature by a guy who was told he was a mystical prophet and started to believe it himself, this is the one for you!

P.S. My mom had the excellent idea that I stick a card in the books I leave so that those who find the books naturally can trace them back to this whole project. So, I’ve done it! Check for these in the books left by me from now on:
