For several years now, I have been wanting to put up a Little Free Library in my front yard. I live in a neighborhood with an interesting mix of people. We get lots of foot traffic going by our house. I love the idea that people could stop by and get a free book right in front of my house. The next best thing to my dream of owning a brick-and-mortar bookstore!

My problem has been that these Little Free Libraries are usually $300-$350. If only I had the woodworking skills and tools to make my own! I am not going to give up though. What better gift to my neighborhood than the gift of free books? This is why I think print books are not going to go away. A print book requires no technology beyond itself. And it can be shared again and again.
I think this is a great goal for my 40th year. What do you think?
