Books for Soldiers
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, May 07, 2008

Go on over to Bithead's blog and read about the needs of "Books for Soldiers", a nonprofit which provides books and other media to members of the US Military who are on active duty.

I can tell you that it is amazing how many soldiers read on deployments. When I was a young soldier I carried a book in a waterproof bag with me everywhere and it stolen moments of rest (out of danger of course), I read. It was an escape. You can go to another place. It is a nice and necessary break.

If you're so inclined, follow the links and hit the tip jar. It is a worthy effort and a worthy cause.

You expect me to believe these Soldiers and Marines can read?

Didn’t you know that only the ignorant and illiterate join the millitary?

:)

I’ll go give this a good look, and figure out how much I can afford to donate...

How much can comics books cost?

I’ll check it out, but will there be a selection of books from the Univ. of Maine? If not why not?

Tell me the truth now. Was it a Stephen King novel?

Heh ... uh, no what I was reading was written before Stephen King knew which end of a pen to hold.

There are convincing arguments to the negative... :)

There is a argument to be made to the publishing companies that they could send their "remaindered" stock to Iraq etc. for the tax write-off.
