An older woman looked at me as I searched through boxes and shelves of free books for the taking. Among them were some newer titles but mostly older ones- classics and others. The woman seemed thrilled to see me and began to show me other books that might interest me. She urged me to take as many as I wanted to and disappeared to find a box or bag for me to put the stack of books I already collected in.

Before we left that same place, another woman was happy when I told her I had found 11 books to take. “Books come in all the time but no one ever really takes any”. It surprised me a little bit. Bookstores are becoming a thing of the past but was no one interested in good literature anymore?

There is nothing like a good book especially one with a little wear and tear.
