An entry before walking

Saturday night. This isn't a real entry, it's just a quick hit to tell everyone to run out to their local Barnes and Noble, pick up one of the Book Drive bookmarks with a child's name on it, select a book for that child, and help B&N donate a million books to children in need this holiday season. The B&N nearest me (Mira Mesa location, for anyone in San Diego) is actually donating all of the books they receive between now and next Friday to Voices for Children for the holiday party next Saturday. (Imagine it: hundreds of children, many of whom have never been able to celebrate the holidays, playing games, eating lots of yummy food, meeting Santa, and getting a book of their very own. I'm going to volunteer, just to experience it.) I went over today and bought Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, and Good Wives for three little girls and The Prince and the Pauper, Treasure Island, and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea for three young men and I feel so happy knowing that there are six little ones in my city that might be getting their first real present ever and that it will have a bookplate inside that has my name on it and a place for theirs, too.

I think I'm finally getting into the holiday spirit.
