A couple of weeks ago I participated in a book exchange one of my Facebook friends had shared. I had to send a book to my Facebook friend’s friend, and had to share the #savetheculture post on my own profile. People who liked my post and wanted to participate, had to send a book to my facebook friend, and so on. If you look up #savetheculture, you will see the book exchange is spread over the whole world!
A nice initiative, isn’t it? I was a little suspicious in the beginning, but immediately shared it though because I knew some of my friends would share it too. And since that day, I was excited every day to come home and check if anything had arrived yet!
I sent “The darkness that divides us”, a book by Renate Dorrestein. (More information about this book in one of my previous reading posts, What I read August.)
The first book I got is a book by Paolo Giordano, “The solitude of prime numbers”. I had heard about it, but I hadn’t read it yet. I certainly will now that it’s on my bookshelf!
One week later, I received “Memoirs of a geisha” by Arthur Golden. This is a book I’d never heard from, apparently the book has also been filmed. I’m curious to read it!
I am so happy I participated in this book exchange. The books I got so far are all sent from Belgium, but one of my friends got one from Barcelona, cool, right?
If you would like to have some more info about the book exchange or if you already participated, please let me know! I’d love to spread and #savetheculture!
Lots of Love,
