This shout out is to Alexa in Sherman Oaks, California. She saw our wish list and realized she already had some of the books we’re wanting. So she popped them in the mail and here they are in Athens… that’s simple.

But Alexa did more than just send the books. She donated PaperBackSwap credits, which I’ll use to get copies of the elusive Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. AND she posted info about Books for Keeps on her Facebook page, which led to even more people hearing about our cause.

Alexa mentioned it didn’t seem like a huge contribution, but I think this is the perfect example of how one person can do a few simple things and make a tremendous difference. So thank you, Alexa. It may not seem like a big deal to you, but it’s a big deal for Books for Keeps. We need you, and more like you. Thank you for helping spread the word!
