Frugal Reader and Me

frugalI just got my first Frugal Reader book in the mail. It’s Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. I’m not sure I can read it during this first year of Big-O’s life, since I’m too anxious to watch the evening news or read half the content of Reader’s Digest. But, I’ve always wanted to read it and now (next year) I can. My favorite part of the Frugal Reader process was the envelope my book came in. There is something really appealing about having a great book sent to you for free from a stranger in Vermont, using an envelope that has been used to send great free books multiple times. It gives me a shiver, a good one.

How cool! It sounds like all the fun of ebay but w/o shelling out any money!

This sounds like MY kind of deal!! I am, like, a charter member of AMAZON.com.... they would be heartbroken if I switched to this, but it would be way kinder on my credit card!
