As a lifetime lover of books, there have been few moments as exciting as finding several boxes of books labeled "free" on a sidewalk near my home. The anticipation as I made three trips carting them home was almost unbearable, as I tried to convince myself to keep my hopes low...they were most likely filled with popular, mass produced paperbacks. The next few hours spent discovering and inventorying each new treasure were some of the happiest in my life. But while I am a lover and a reader of books of all sorts, I am not a collector. It began to seem wrong to be keeping them to myself when I knew there were people out there who would truly appreciate and cherish them. I came to the conclusion that it is my job to send these books to their "true" owners where they could take their rightful place as a prized asset in a collection, or an often read family tradition. If I am truly a lover of books, its the least I can do.
