Still Trying to Think of Ways to Help...
...that don't put you deeper into debt.
And imagine sitting in a shelter. Wouldn't it be nice to have a trashy book to read to take your mind off of things for a little bit? Wouldn't it be great if you had a bedtime story to read to your daughter? Not "My Pet Goat", though.
There are a couple of places collecting used books for people - Borders and Waldenbooks in Houston are accepting donations in their stores, or you can send them to:
OPERATION BOOKS FOR REFUGEES FROM KATRINA
Houston, TX 77098
And a Nora Roberts fan group is collecting all kinds of books here:
Books for Comfort Drive
c/o Turn the Page Bookstore Cafe
18 N MAIN ST
Boonsboro, MD 21713
Do this after you make that cash donation to the charity of your choice, obviously.
