Thanks for taking a moment to check out this post.  I am a psychiatric R.N., and I make regular visits to group homes to check on clients with mental illnesses.  Their levels of functioning are quite varied; while some are college educated, others read at a grade school level.  Several clients have requested reading materials for their homes.  I am supplying books and magazines of my own, but am wondering if any kind members would be willing to donate some books?  (I would need to review the options for appropriateness of topic.)  Please PM me if you are able to help out.  Thank you!

Unless I can find a box of books I have stored out in the tack room of the barn, about all I have available now are romance books and would be glad to send some should you think they'd be appropriate for any readers.  Otherwise, I could buddy you a couple of credits and maybe you could make a deal with a reader for books that you'd consider appropriate.
