If you know me, you know that I love books. Big time. And I love gifting people books that I think will give them something more than just ink and paper – be it insight, a laugh, or just some smart-but-mindless entertainment.

When I read this post , I decided that my “do 1,000 times” thing was to give 1,000 books. Later I realized that I’d missed a zero. But 1000 books is still a lot, so we’ll start here.

I’m tracking the ones I give, and why I’ve given them, in this Pinterest board. I’ve started out with individual gifts, but I’ll need to figure out a way to do some hefty donations to schools/libraries to meet my goal.
