Birthday Drop Offs

8 comments

After this, you'd be calling me the Queen of Late Posts.  I humbly submit to that. But it's better late than never, yes?  Besides, I did promise I'll post this one, so, a promise is a promise.

Last September, during my birthday month, I promised to make a book drop every week. And I did.  These were the books I intended to drop off.  I attached a short missive to each one, so anyone who finds it doesn't toss it into the "Lost and Found" bin.




I do hope those books found a good home, and whoever found them might turn out to be a book lover too.



Hey, you don't think this is the last of the drop-off, right?  If you are keeping tabs on the Filipino Friday meme, then you know that for October 21-27, we are encouraged to make book drop-offs, The Pinoy Book Drop, in the spirit of spreading the love for book reading. Followed by the All Hallow's Read (Give Someone a Scary Book this Halloween), prompted by this author's blog entry: A Modest Proposal.  So, until the next set of drop-offs, readers!

  1. My goodness, the books you've dropped are very good books! I hope the people who found them would enjoy them as much as you and I did!

    Oh, and belated happy birthday, Louize!

    1. Thank you, Peter!
      These are some of my favorites. I hope they will turn to be someone's favorites too. ♥

  3. Aw, History of Love! I'm excited to do the book drop too. Will "drop" books within the week, and I should perfect the art of subtlety haha. Crossing my fingers that the books will find new homes who will love them as much as I did. :)

    1. History of Love is the kind of love that must be shared.

  4. They were in plastic! Hmm. That sounds like a good idea. Next time I drop a book, I'll put them in plastic first. :)

    1. Hi, Monique!
      I didn't bother removing the original plastic covers, but I have to attach my note and I don't want it to get wet or lost, hence the additional plastic wraps. I used those 500gms clear plastic bags I found at the groceries. Now that I thought about it, I should have used Cling Wrap instead, it's easier. :)
