I heard about this organization a few months back and immediately signed up, because who can't use more books? We received our box before Christmas and it was chocked full of books for all the kids reading levels. I finally got to read The Book Thief and I have another pile of books to read in the upcoming weeks. Goodness knows I have no exciting nights in this house after the kids are in bed, and I'm able to plow through a book or more every week.
Operation Paperback has volunteers all over the United States that gather books for your families and ship them out, free of charge! It was easy to do, just go here to sign up!
They even ship books to your Soldier who is deployed, and you can sign them up here.
They also have several ways that you can volunteer with their organization as well.
We have survived four year long deployments--one to Bosnia and three to Iraq. We have been married for almost 17 years and have three children--Em, Abs, and Junior. Gunner is currently deployed for the 5th time to Afghanistan. We are fast approaching the year mark, and then we will focus on the prize--retirement!
