Little Free Libraries
I am having so much fun visiting my local Little Free Libraries. If you haven't heard from them, basically, they are little boxes, maybe a bit bigger than a birdhouse, where you can leave a book, or take a book... for free! I guess the thing I love about them is that each one is like a tiny, charming surprise. Each one that I've seen is decorated differently. People are so creative! You probably have one close to you - check the map.
If you don't have one near you, you can start one. You can pour as little or as much money into it as you wish. You can purchase a Little Free Library box from their website, or they helpfully provide plans so you can build your own, or you can use your own creativity and build something of your own design.
Personally, I have waaaay too many books - I'm having a lot of fun leaving books at Little Free Libraries and seeing people take them.
