"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

Recycle those old phone booths


I think this is a great idea, altho in my town, we have a lot of options: the library, the library used book sales, where people often buy and then re-donate books, and the laundromat across the street from the library, which is also an informal book and periodicals exchange locale.

Still, I like the idea of book kiosks scattered about. Forget what you were driving to the mall for? Pull over and read a quick story or chapter, then on your way.

That's brilliant, such a great yet simple idea. I would never get anywhere on time though, if I had to pass it everyday.

I walk my dog past the library every day. There is a free outdoor bookshelf -- hard to pass by if I didn't know all the titles already.
