The local nursing home is looking for Nicholas Sparks books for their resident's angel tree.  If anyone has a few of these titles & would offer a deal, please pm me.  Thank you very much!

(They did not express a preference on titles or formats...though, actual books.)

I don't have any either, but just sent you a credit.  What a nice thing to do for the holidays as a project.

A quick thanks to Caitlyn H. (QuietCait) & Janet (candy14) for books on the way!  I will continue collecting titles through this week...(and will deliver weekly if they don't all arrive at the same time).

Thank you both!  I will keep you posted on how they get used!

I appreciate all the support very much!  But I will feel guilty if I get any more credits right now...want to make sure they all get used for this project specifically.  I will update if I've run low...okay?

So far, I have 8 books confirmed (yay!) and on the way.  (Titles: The Longest Ride, The Last Song, The Wedding, Dear John, Message in a Bottle, Nights in Rodanthe, The Choice & The Lucky One)

Update on requests...just got back from the nursing home; they are so excited.  I told them I had some other offers & asked if they had any other requests.  Their next request would be Amish romances.  So I'm going to work on getting some of those, too!  Christian romance would also be fine, as I'm sure that question will come up...and also large print is okay but not required.  Thanks everybody!

 

I'll keep you posted if the credits run low...but have plenty to work with right now.

Oh, so if anyone has Amish romances for a deal; let me know!  (They couldn't tell me any titles or what they've already read.)

I took the 1st batch of books to the nursing home today!  They're so thrilled & wanted me to express how grateful they are!  They are having a party tomorrow, but said that they would distribute the others when I bring them.

I did get a great batch of Amish books.  Thanks for all the donations!  (The Parting- Beverly Lewis, The Bishops Daughter- Wanda Brunstetter, The Hope Chest- Wanda Brunstetter, Amish Justice- Ken Munro plus one nonfiction heading to the library)

I'll be organizing for the next batch of requests soon through this weekend, and hopefully have things finalized by next week.  There will always be a need for reading material...Amish romance is the main request now.  Hope this is a wonderful season & year end for you all!

We just got 4 more, and I'm chatting with a member who has offered to buy See me!  So that just leaves one more Sparks book: A Walk to Remember (I'll try to pair it up with some Amish books).  Wow, wow, wow!  Thanks for all the help!
