How i love The Book Thing! It is a place where you can drop off your old books and get new ones. For FREE! And you don't have to drop off books to take books. The books are just there for you to take. It's like a library, but you get to keep the books. For FREE!
I always have a pile of books that i've read that need to find another home and i love taking them to the book thing. I had 2 grocery bags of books, but Kate and Jason had a few more than that:
That's 12 boxes of books! They purged 400 books during packing for the move. It was nice to help them take all of those books to a good home. And i managed to only bring home 1 bag of new books. 2 bags out and 1 bag in still puts me at less books than i started with!
