I noticed something at Cafe Younes, my home away from home, last week. It’s a book basket. Quite a simple concept but a great idea: you exchange a book for a book. Every book you take from the basket must be replaced with another book of your own so there is always the same number available. It’s a good way to have a little selection of random things to read from different types of readers. I admit I already have a collection waiting for me at home but this could be fun if you’re looking for some new material and don’t want to fork over the moola for it. And personally, I prefer actual pages to reading off of a kindle or iPad.
