Update: Operation Paperback

Plus a special request

Thank You - Operation PaperbackWe’ve been filling boxes with books for Operation Paperback for a good while now and we could not have done it with out the help of your donations to pay for postage. To date we’ve shipped over 5000 books and paid over $1500 in postage from your contributions. These books go to active duty service men and women, veterans, and their families, both in the US and overseas.

Of course we do everything possible to send these heroes the books they will appreciate most, and the majority of the time we are able to fill all requests. But there are some books the troops keep asking for that we just don’t have enough of: audio books and puzzle books.

We do have some audio books, but our supplyis limited and most of what we have left we’re saving for our customers. We’re asking for additional donations. We can give you store credit for them or if you would prefer them to go straight to Operation Paperback, let us know and we’ll set them aside for that purpose exclusively.

In the case of puzzle books, we generally don’t have any. This is simply not the sort of thing that our customers bring us, typically. We’re looking for crossword puzzles, Sudoku, word search… any kind of puzzles, really… and we’re hoping that you have some lying around, at least partly unused, that you won’t mind giving them to a good cause.

Our participation in Operation Paperback has always relied on the help our customers give us with paying postage. Now we need another kind of help. If you have some used books on CD or some slightly used puzzle books, please consider bringing them in to share with the men and women in uniform who have pledged to protect our nation. You will have our thanks, and theirs.
