OK, this is my last challenge -- promise! I really love the idea of reading for a good cause, so I couldn't pass this one up. I am opting to track my reading and make a donation each quarter instead of buying books at a charity shop. There are two reasons for this -- first, I don't have any charity shops nearby and second, I am really trying to limit my book buying this year. I am planning to donate to Feeding America, FINCA, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and some sort of literacy program -- probably one from this list.
Here's what I've decided on to guide my fund-raising:
- picture book -- 1st reads + Caldecott re-reads for Julie's challenge
- young-reader's/beginner book
- stand-alone short story
- short non-fiction
- most graphic novels/comic collections
- novel (adult/YA/middle grade)
- longer graphic novels & comic collections (like Blankets, etc.)
- full-length non-fiction
- short story collection
- poetry collection
$5 bonus per:
If it looks like the totals are getting higher than I anticipate, I may opt to donate more frequently to spread things out -- maybe monthly or bimonthly -- I'll see how it goes!
