I recently received a list of books from our local high school that they are in need of.  Due to limited funds and aging books, the books need replacing on a dwindling budget.  Because I'm a believer in education AND repurposing, I am making it my mission to collect as many of these as I can.

I signed up for coupons with Half Priced Books {} and have the list printed off where I keep it in my car for easy access.  My goal is to buy a book from this list each time I make another book purchase and acquire a sufficient collection to donate to the school.

If any of you have any of these books in your collection that you are looking to get rid of, or if you would like to make a donation yourself, I will be touring the country this summer {on what is known as my summer vacation}and would gladly take any of these pieces of literature off your hands and bring them back to Fairborn where the students here can put them to good use.

I'm a teacher by trade, writer at heart & mom in every sense of my being. I never considered writing as a profession, but after I got married and began moving around the country, I began sharing my adventures, misadventures & updates through a sort of e-mail newsletter. I found a true passion in unconventional story-telling that has followed me into motherhood.
