Found on another friends blog, this link to a cool initiative: Books! Books for Native American kids who might not get access to these books. Check it out, buy a book or two if you wish. I was lucky enough to win a book this week so I felt maybe I should pay some of my literary luck forward as it were. I am sending a book about extreme scientists and a sci fi anthology to the school in NM.
I was a geeky sickly kid. Books were my ticket out of my bedroom when my body couldn't take me. Out of the hospital where I felt trapped and alone. Out of social situations where I knew I was not fitting in. So I'm helping to give those wings of freedom to another kid, or two. Like I said, it's really cool.
