In one of the comments in the post below, Visual Vamp said that since so many of you couldn't get to the Book Thing, I should set up an on-line store and sell books to you all. I would love to sell you all the books, but I can't.
For those of you who are new here, Book Thing is a non-profit organization that gives away books to anyone and everyone. You can take one book or you can pull up a tractor trailer and fill it to the brim. There are books being donated and arriving at Book Thing around the clock - literally. They have bins out back for people to stop and donate books.
Books are given away on Saturdays and Sundays from 9-6. But 99.998% of the books at Book Thing are marked with this stamp:
The other .002% of the books are sold to support the mission of Book Thing. They are mostly rare books or first editions that have been donated, either knowingly or unknowingly. Book Thing also accepts monetary donations and receives grants from some of the foundations in Baltimore. What Russell Wattenberg, the founder of Book Thing, is doing is truly a mission to make all types of books accessible to everyone.
You can get an idea of what a bare-bones operation Book Thing is here. Seriously. No heat or air conditioning, no coffee bar and no bathrooms. The empty shelves in the middle of the image above are where the Decorating and Gardening sections are located.
So while I am happy to send you books that I find or extra copies, I just can't sell them to you.
