Fantastic Friday: A request

>We all have books we don’t want, right?  We bought them thinking they’d be great and they weren’t.  Or we got duplicates as a gift.  Or even you’ve switched your entire library to an electronic one and have only ebooks now.  What do you do with all those books you’re not reading? 

Well, I have one suggestion. A good friend of mine, Ebyss Writer, is asking for donated books to help with her students.  She can explain it better than I can, so please read below.

I work with lower income and special students who want to expand their knowledge through a college education, but they are struggling with reading and/or mathematical concepts.

I would like to start a book drive. This way these students can improve their reading scores through practicing what we all love to do—-read. As we know, the more you read, then the better you get. Plus, I hope to ignite in them a passion for exploring other worlds and other people through the written word.

I am asking for you to help me by donating books for this cause. Any MG or YA books would be greatly appreciated.

New or used–doesn’t matter. Fiction or non-fiction—doesn’t matter. The only thing I would like to do is keep the reading lvl at MG and YA.

What I plan to do when I get with these students is let them choose a book for them to keep. A lot of these students don’t read—at least by choice—and I’m hoping to expose them to great novels.

If you would like to help, please leave a comment, message me on twitter or leave me a message on facebook. Also, if you could plz retweet this or like on facebook with a link to spread the word would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.

Thanks everyone who can help or pass along the word.  If you leave a comment on here for her, I will pass it along.  I’m already going through my books to see what I can give her.
