I was poking around craigslist not too long ago, seeing if I had anything anyone needed in the “wanted” section when I came across this ad:
Wanted: BOOKS OR MOVIES
I am in need of books of any kind to read myself or to my children I have been laid off of work now for 7 months and have lost are cable due to the price increase so we read more and watch movies well we have read every book and watched the same movies for about 2 months soanything would be appreaciated at this point again thanks and have a blessed day.
You can see where this is going, right?
I promptly cut and pasted the email address and sent the person a note suggesting she (I am assuming it is a mother) go to her local library to check out books, DVDs, CDs, and to take advantage of the free programs for children and adults. I wished her luck during her difficult time, and that I hoped she and her girls would enjoy the library.
Shortly thereafter, she replied:
Miss JulieThank you so much I never thought of that my girls would love thatGOD BLESS you
