I'm passing this info along to my very helpful PBS buddies, reprinted from the daily newsletter "Shelf Awareness":

Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, Tex., is becoming "command center" for a nationwide book drive to replace books in three local school libraries that lost most of their collections because of damage caused by Hurricane Ike. Owner Valerie Koehler said that booksellers, publishers and others are helping the effort, which she is making with her staff, area student organizations and scout troops. She hopes to collect more than 1,000 books by December 1 to deliver to Anahuac High School, Alief Hastings 9th Grade Center and Brazosport Intermediate School.

For more information, including needed titles and how to help, see the bookstore's
Ike Relief page.

They are asking for new and "like-new" copies. Here is a partial wish list of books requested by Freeport Intermediate School:

Abbott Bridesmaid

Anderson The Game of Sunken Places

Archer Gideon the Cutpurse
