NEW SERIES: Book Club
I am so excited to announce a new series on Leopard and Lavender. Book Club! One of my New Year's resolutions was to read more. I feel that more and more, I'll reach for a book but before I event make it through chapter one... I'm on Instagram, Pinterest, OR watching a Real Housewives marathon. Ugh! Enter my new favorite website, Better World Books. Better World Books is a for profit social enterprise. They collect AND sell books online, and match each purchase with a donation- book for book! Each sale generates $$ for literacy initiatives. Since the company began in 2003, they've raised over $16 million for libraries and literacy, donated over 12 million books; re-used or recycled over 120 million books AND achieved 44,000 tons of carbon offsets through carbon balanced shipping. Think of Better World Books as a library that helps people's minds AND the planet. So, why wouldn't we start reading more... right?
So, with the help of Better World Books, I will be starting my very own book club here on the blog! I'll choose different books, ask questions and open discussions, and get all of us reading more and on the computer less. First up?? Where'd You Go Bernadette.
