If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads. Ralph Waldo Emerson
A book that captures your attention from the first line, paragraph or page.
How some writers have the ability to take you on a descriptive journey. Bringing characters and story lines to life.
The best writers make you feel as though you know the characters intimately – they become real.
I think I have done well, if I have acquired a new word from a good author; and my business with him is to find my own, though it were only to melt him down into an epithet or an image for daily use. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love to read.

We recycle books, either by giving to friends, family, or donating to the library or local thrift stores.
The majority of time we get our reading materials from the library…
Yet, we do enjoy keeper books, and do buy for our library.
After some considerable thought. I wanted to do something more than a book summary or review.
We talk action, although for many, actions never come to fruition.
An Idea, a Concept, Connection, a Movement
A way to promote literacy, and a way for people to connect. Connections around the world. A movement.
This is a collective consideration. It only works if others get on board.
What is it that I am proposing?
Leaving one of your favourite books on your next flight or in the airport.
In the jacket of the book ask the finder to “book it forward”.
After you have finished reading the book, sign your name, city of residence, country, and destination. Then leave the book on your next flight. Or if not travelling soon leave in the airport or train station, bus depot.
Let’s see how far the book travels!

I will update your comments under the post, “Book it forward”.
This is a way to promote reading. To share a connection. So much discussion on connectedness and how it creates purpose, and meaning to your life.
I have heard of people talking about books circulating the world before.
We travel to other countries, and within our own. Have never seen a book left behind on a plane, or in the airport terminal.
Would love to find one someone has left on purpose.
Sincerely hope that you will join in. I know that I am weird, quirky, and think outside the box.
Read an article today that mentioned Oprah Winfrey is INFJ on Meyers Briggs!
Loved that as I am INFJ too, didn’t realize it was the rarest indicator. Only 1 to 2 percent register as this. Happy to be in such good company. Different article!
Please leave a comment. Perhaps you are getting ready to travel. Even if not, there are airports, train stations, cruise ship terminals, bus depots.
We are going to New York, one of our favourite places. I will be leaving my first book on the plane from Montreal, Canada to New York City, United States.
My first book that I would love to share with you is The Paper Bag Christmas by Kevin Alan Milne. It is the book I have gifted most.
Now, this book will be travelling the world. This is a book that resonates to my core. It is about inspiration.
