We Give Books: Help Children In Need for FREE

We Give Books is a great organization that donates books to children in need, all over the world. It’s easy for YOU to make an impact: simply go to the website (www.wegivebooks.org, or click on the image below to open a new window), select a campaign that you’d like to support, and then read a children’s book online for FREE. For every book you read online, one book will be donated to the campaign of your choice. It’s that simple!

So what are you waiting for? Everyone loves children’s books. The selection of books on this website will continue to grow, so check back often–preferably in the company of the little ones in your life! Show them how they can have fun reading AND making a difference in the lives of other children, all with a few clicks of a mouse.

Writer’s block?

Check out the two titles I just added to the top of the “Writer’s Reference” page of The Bookshelf. These Pocket Muse books are great for anyone who needs a little help getting started with their next story or poem. Full of writing prompts and other tips and tricks, they can provide just the inspiration you need before you set your pen to the page. Reviews for these neat little companions can be found at:


(Also check out the Tips for Writers page on that website!)

Check back soon–I’ll have another post up within the next couple of days…

Elephants never forget...but sometimes they do go missing.
