(g) OctaTimbre / Feeding Interests (10.21)

Feeding Interests
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Sometimes when trading books – you get
Lucky and get something that is
A keeper, maybe not for you
But for someone else – at the train
Station’s You Trade Em book box
A treasure …buried deep under
Some religious ‘tracts’ was a book
About a sunken ship namely
The Titanic that I know will
Entertain Son of Son for hours!

    • We’ve got one at the small airport and I’ve seen a few Pop-up mini trade boxes too.
      You can Google Little Free Library
      “Little Free Library originated in Hudson, Wisconsin, in 2009, when Todd Bol built a wooden box with a glass door, modeled on a one-room schoolhouse, in honor of his mother’s career as an educator. He nailed the box to a post in his front yard and stuffed it with books. The idea spread and in 2012 Little Free Library incorporated as a non-profit. By January of 2016, there were at least 36,000 Little Free Libraries across the globe.”
      I’ve actually seen one in Kentucky, and that’s not including the free book trade places in hotel lobbies.
