As you may have seen across my social media channels (gosh that sounds pretentious… but, yeah...), I launched a webpage for The Cube’s Little Free Library Challenge in February. The goal is to get a copy of The Cube in as many Little Free Libraries, across as many cities as possible - and in all 50 states!
As of today:
Current state count: 12
Current cities count: 17
Current Little Free Library count: 39
As you venture out this spring on spring break vacations, weekend getaways, or just a regular old Wednesday, please consider picking up a copy of The Cube and placing it in a Little Free Library by you.
If you live in a state we’ve already covered, still do it! States are big! Cities are big! I have put a ton in just Chicago alone. Don’t let it stop you. The more the better!
If you know people in other cities or states that might have fun, please encourage them to participate!
If you aren’t in the US and still want to play, send me photos from abroad and I will ABSOLUTELY add them to my webpage.
Why should you do this? WELL…
Obviously this gives me something to promote, and hopefully will garner a few sales, but that’s really not my main objective. This Little Free Library project has brought SO MUCH JOY!
It’s SO MUCH FUN to see the creativity of the people that put the libraries up, all the design styles, the reasons why they went up, and book genre choices. It’s crazy to know I will probably never know who picks up my book and how many other people might get it if it gets placed into the same (or a different) LFL again. It’s so lovely and whimsical and I hope you will pick up on that vibe too.
I love the Little Free Library organization and they have been really supportive and encouraging of this project. When I contacted them to tell them about it, they were all for it. Very nice people. To learn more about them, please visit their website and consider a donation!
With unending appreciation,
PS… just a quick note… A signed copy of The Cube with an author meet-and-greet is up for auction for the Waters Elementary School’s annual Big Night fundraiser. I’m happy to help raise money for this great school. It’s item #1028. You can find it under “Browse Items” or under the category “Entertainment.” The auction is live until Friday, March 8 so place your bid today!
