Task Place happy notes inside books at a book store
This event was done on 12-7-09
So this was the nice needed that reminded me NOT ALL people are being nice to strangers this month. Note to the world, if you see a woman with a stroller, please DO NOT Slammed the door in her face. Strollers and doors do NOT get along.
Also Borders, I understand the publishing industry is in a state of upheaval right now, but you are not helping matters with isles that are not accessible with a stroller or your YA section that apparently doesn't follow the rules of the alphabet.
That being said, my task was an different sort of one. I took this idea from an on-line community called Nerdfighters. On my other blog I I wrote all about them.
I placed notes in book I've enjoyed reading. There were ten different notes ranging in comments like, "This book was amazing, I hope you enjoy it." to "Smile it's free."
My feeling thought was it would be cool to read a good book and find a little note inside from someone else who read the book.
On the back of the note had this website on it. Maybe people will read the note and post to the website.
Some of the books were
Paper Towns by John Green
The Book Thief
Reaction: Unknown at this time. This one is something that will take time. Maybe it will work, maybe not.
How much did it cost me? The act itself was fine, and free, the trip to Borders I could have done with
How much time did it take? Total time about 10 minutes
How much effort? This took the most effort, between writing out the notes, cutting and pasting the info about the blog, driving to the store and dealing with my child.
Will I do it again?: We'll see how this goes. I think it's a cool idea.
