Do you #givebooks ?

Monday, November 30, 2015
I try to do a little holiday shopping here and there through out the year but with Thanksgiving I've really pushed into overdrive. Books are one of my favorite gifts. So far my purchases include a book on pyrography (creating art by burning designs into wood or leather), one on Charles Schulz (creator of Peanuts), several Star Wars comic books and The Hungry Caterpillar for a baby shower next month. Then there's the book that I don't know the title of, that I gave to a child whose name I don't know, that lives in a place I don't know. Would you like to do the same?

Chronicle Books and First Book are teaming up this holiday season with the #givebooks project. Take the pledge to give a book this holiday season and Chronicle Books will donate a book to First Book, a non-profit organization that donates book to children and libraries in need. This is the fourth year for the program. Last year 10,000 books were donated, this year #givebooks is hoping for 30,000 books.

It's easy to take the pledge. At #givebooks you can sign up by posting on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr or, if you're really old-fashioned, by signing an online pledge. As a thank you, you can download a coloring page for adults of a jam-packed bookstore by artist Steve McDonald.

Share with us the books you plan to give this year!

Love this program and yes, I always give a couple books. I'm off to sign up! Thanks, Jodi.

(Not sure what books I'm giving this year...have to do a little shelf shopping. :-)
