Yesterday I donated a copy of "When the Bough Breaks" to my local library. I'd thought of doing this off and on, weighing the pros and cons off each other. One reason I'd hesitated for so long is the fact that the library is stocked full of books already -- did I really stand a chance of anyone wanting to check out mine? Or, but just maybe, could it be since a local author offered a book, might they place me up front?
Still, a turtle doesn't get anywhere until it sticks its neck out, so I decided to go for it. And I was pleasantly surprised when she agreed so whole-heartedly. Over the years, I'd built up a rapport with the administrator, and she was also agreeable to my placing bookmarks out.
And come to find out, two weeks ago they'd held a local art/author event, and even with it being on a weekday, three hundred people showed up! THREE HUNDRED!!! Man, why did I not know this???
I think I need to drop into my local library more often. :)
