Dear Bibliobibuli Anonymous: I Fell Off the Wagon Again

Yes, I bought a stack of books on Friday. BUT I intend to read them and pass them on. They will not become permanent fixtures in my too-tiny home.

What’s more, the purchase was for a good cause—the International Book Project. The IBP promotes literacy by sending books to schools in developing nations and leads a pen-pal program to build cultural awareness between U.S. schoolchildren and their counterparts abroad.

Going to the IBP sale was a spontaneous thing to do on an otherwise lazy afternoon and my husband and I got to see a section of town we’d never been in. We came away with 11 books for under $10—staying budget-conscious while simultaneously donating to a fine charity. All good.
