This past Sunday, I drove up to Racine, Wisconsin in order to pass out twenty copies of The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo to the residents of an independent living facility. I had heard about WBN through my director who had previously done it the year before. It was such a hard choice choosing which books to give to people. The book I chose is so dear to my heart as it brings up memories and events I experienced while reading it. I had such a great time going from door to door passing out books. Almost every door I knocked on and person I talked to received the book warmly and found the information that multiple publishers had donated books reassuring and that all over the world millions of people were receiving books just like they were. I had the opportunity to explain what the book was about and ecstatic that NONE of the people had read it! Even though some people asked for donations, they were astonished to know that it was free completely theirs to keep which many people thought was amazing! I'm so glad to know that I was apart of this program!
I also have received feedback from recipients who are saying they are enjoying the book :)
You should check out the book at your local library
