Here’s a great organization for you to donate your books or even ARC’s (advance review copies) if you don’t want to pay postage to Poland (see my previous post). Riders for Readers is a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who vrooooom to elementary and middle schools in the Richmond, VA area, and talk to kids about how cool it is to read — AND give them free books (also, T-shirts, snacks, and a chance to sit on a motorcycle — way cool)! Started as the brainchild of Velocity Motorcycles owner Eric Engler, Riders for Readers is zooming across the country and may be spreading globally. Vrooooom!! What a great way to capture kids’ attention!
If you’d like to donate to Riders for Readers, please contact Eric at Velocity Motorcycles, 3023 W. Marshall St., Richmond, VA 23230, (804) 353-3456, eric (at) velocity vintage.com or hmushman (at) earthlink.net.
