Ideas to try
This desire to have a word for the year just won’t go away. It has been cropping up everywhere. There are several blogs that discuss why it is a good thing. Then, Charu left a comment here with her word (‘Stretch’). A lot of my favourite bloggers have their words in place. ‘Light’ shows up […]
Imagine you’re in a yellow and black taxi sputtering towards your destination, wondering whether you would have been better off squashed in a local train. You warily eye the meter as it spins rather too quickly for your wallet; you are stuck and there’s nothing you can do but wait. But wait. If you are […]
I just heard about this wonderful idea via Hope Clark’s blog. The ‘Little Free Library’ is a project to build over 2510 free (little) libraries in the world. Why 2510?

Even with writing a book and starting a new business, she’s still searching. This hasn’t happened to me lately, but […]
The Book Bike is a custom-build tricycle with 200lbs of free books that rides around Chicago and stops in parks and beaches (among other locations) and invites anyone who wants a book to take something home for their own private library. Found via booklover
