So, reader participation time: if you have a hardcover copy of any of the Harry Potter books sitting around that you wouldn't mind parting with, call a local school and ask if their library wants it. Odds are you'll get a very friendly reception. Our local school's library could use a few extra copies of Chamber of Secrets, Half-Blood Prince (we donated one a few years ago) and Deathly Hallows if you'd like to pass them along to a school I'm involved with. As usual, I do offer my skilled services in thanks for your donation.
(Next week is book fair at the school Laurel attends but I'm not as involved with their PTA, so I won't write much about it.)
