Guys Lit Wire Book Fair

Every year the Guys Lit Wire blog holds a book fair, rallying the online literary community to donate books to a deserving library. Past recipients have included an LA County Detention Center, a day school on a Navajo reservation in New Mexico, and a deserving high school in Washington, D.C. This year they're sticking with D.C.'s Ballou Senior High School, since they're still very much in need of material for their students.

This year I'm donating Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, which I reviewed right here. Like I mentioned, I think it would make a terrific YA read, and I'm betting the students will love it. Though perhaps the 80s nostalgia will go right over their heads. Some of these kids, after all, were born the year Titanic came out. And may or may not know it was a real event and not just a movie. That...that's just disturbing.

If you're interested in helping out, check right here for all the details. Donations will be purchased from a Powells wishlist, and mailed directly to the library.
