I started a (small) community project on our outside wall. I commissioned L'Usband to build the cabinet, I painted it with happy stripes and a sign to match, and then I proceeded to fill it with books with the help of two friends. The idea is that people can take books for free, read them, keep them or pass them on to a friend or charity. The only proviso is that I ask people not to sell books they take.
A week into the project - about 14 books have been taken, and 3 books have been added by persons unknown. Pretty cool, hey!
