Book passing

Okay, today’s post is going to sound a little weird, but I wanted to take a break from normal to talk about an idea that I had and I’m enjoying doing.

It’s not a new idea and I’m sure there are websites dedicated to it. The idea was a solution to a problem that I have around collecting books. I have too many and can’t keep moving them around. So I’ve decided to downsize on the books.

I’ll keep my favourites and ones that I’ll read again, but I need to decimate my collection. I could sell them on ebay – and I probably will – but some of them are pretty new and would interest friends of mine.

So I thought what I would do is randomly post a book to someone who I think would really enjoy it.

I’ll write my name and city I’m from plus the date in the front of the book. I’ll put a note on the book. And then I’ll send it to someone who’d enjoy it. The note says:

“Read this book, write your name in it and give it to someone else.”

It will be interesting to see if any of these books resurface in years to come with names and countries covering the inside front cover.

From a financial side, I justify doing this by knowing that I used to pay about $30 for a book in a store. I can now buy the book on amazon or ebay for $15. I can then spend the saved $15 on the postage to give the book a new life. Works out the same, but I don’t have to keep the book and someone gets given a cool present.

It’s kind of like when you agree to lend a book to someone knowing that you’ll probably never get it back…. but you’re okay with that. It’s just being more proactive.

It’s been too long

Life gets busy.

Especially when you have myriad projects that you want to do.

However, I have been doing things, and taking notes and photos, but I haven’t had time to post them on this blog.

This is all about to change.

I love this blog and I love doing lots of different things so I’m going to set a goal.

From the 1st of July, 2013 I will be posting at least two posts to this blog each week. The plan will be to post a new update to the blog each Tuesday and Thursday. I can’t be certain I won’t mess up from time to time, but I will do everything I can to get this running regularly again.

A big thank you from me for sticking with reading the blog even though it has been some time since I has posted. Also, welcome to all new readers and thanks to everyone who has shared this around as well.

I’m looking forward to seeing you more often. đŸ™‚

Hello world!

Hey there!

Welcome to my hectic world. This blog is an attempt to try to get all the projects and strange things I’m into arranged in some sort of semblence of organisation.

Each category is a different project and I’ll be updating them all as frequently as I can with or without photos where possible. I’ll try to give as much detail as I can in case you may want to follow in my footsteps.

Comments welcome!
