"Jeanne @ Collage of Life is the custodian of a wonderful tradition called The Brown Paper Book Club. It's an easy thing to participate in, all you have to do is to read a book and when you have finished, wrap it up in brown paper, toddle off to the post office and send it to someone whom you think might enjoy it. Then, if you feel like it, go to Jeanne's blog and record which books you have paid forward so others might have a couple of reading suggestions for their booklists.
I've forwarded a few dog-eared paper backs that were given to me by my best friend Petra to sister Victoria in BC. Some I have liked, some I have loved, one I adored. No matter...the principle is just one of sharing. It's a little thing, but then again life is made up of little things and some of them make you feel really good. Jeanne is a clever lady; she knows this and works energetically to communicate such in her multifaceted blog. Do yourself a favour and read a little of what she has to say about life at Chateau Mango in Vietnam, and if you have the time and inclination, join her Brown Paper Book Club. As Martha would say...It's a good thing."JP
