Read a Book, Give a Book

by Ljerka S. Teacher
First, I wasn't sure what category to choose for my today's article, but I think Society
is the best I could have chosen. And it is global society I am thinking about.
I came across this website by chance while looking for some other stuff and it caught my attention immediately. It is not a business iniciative, it is not something that will make you rich, but it will give you a lot of "feeling good".
What is it about? All you have to do is sign up, choose a book, read it on-line and then press the tab "give a book" and the owner of the site will give the book you have read to a school in America or send it somewhere else - Africa or Asia, for example. These are books for children and you can read it together with your child, with your pupils at school or kindergarten. I think  I should mention that it is a Pearson foundation site.
After you have dome this a similar mail will come to your inbox:

"Thanks so much for reading at We Give Books. You have just verified your book donation. Thank you!  491,762 Books Donated So Far!

I hope my article will wake up a new reading zest in you.
