DirectActionMicroCharityFilter: So I stumbled on this link
and this link
at craigslist. Then just above it is this link.
And then I think about the massive pile of books I need to go through and that I probably need to thin the herd - but I also think about the fact that most of the children's books I have are sentimental family gifts I'd be loath to part with for that reason alone, but certainly not any material value. (They're well-loved books, of course.)
And then I think about keeping this sort of thing in mind when I'm trawling thrift stores and garage sales.
And then I think "Hey, that'd make a great website! A place to exchange books! Locally even! Or a data-mining app that would automatically attempt to find matches!"
Punchline inside. [more inside]
