The Stranger In The Woods by Michael Finkel

Hosted @ Freda’s Voice

“The billy-goat woods,” Sergeant Hughes called it. The locals’ term for this patch of forest, known for  repelling hunters and holding in snow, is “the Jarsey,” sharing a name with the unpaved Jarsey Road, which cuts through it.

What do you do with books you no longer want? Do you donate them? Do you take them to a half-price bookstore? Does a friend or family member benefit?
I donate them to my local libraries and give them to family members.

1. I have googled many things, mostly new to me words because I want to know what they mean.

2. I have bought a lot of stuff, and even sold a few things, on Ebay.

3. I think I want to go on a walk at a nearby trail that goes alongside a river. It’s so relaxing there.

4. Not everyone thinks like I do, and that’s ok. I love hearing other peoples thoughts on things. Sometimes they make me look at things differently.

  1. The book sounds like one I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE PEOPLE AT NUMBER 9”

    I donate my books to the neighborhood library.

  2. Donating books has been the answer for most folks. I do the same.

    Love your answers to the Friendly Fill-Ins.

    Most folks I know don’t like to read or they read and don’t read what I like. 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

    Happy Hopping!!

  3. We try to pass our books along, too. We give them to friends and neighbors. We probably need to take a load to the thrift store soon, too. Have a great day.

  4. I march to the beat of a different drummer, too. Not everyone is going to think alike and that is okay. The world would be very boring if we were all just alike. 🙂

    I think your walking path sounds fun. I bet it probably has some interesting wildlife along the way.

    We give our unwanted books away. Have you heard of The Little Free Library program? Well, we are doing something similar to that, but not officially. We have a bin on our front porch that we put the books in. The neighbors know it has books in it that are free for the taking. They don’t have to leave one to take one. They can take as many as they want or even all of them. What the neighbors don’t take, we will take to the thrift store and/or to the Friends of the Library program at our local county library. I hope to some day be able to operate an official Little Free Library here in our neighborhood.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  5. I love rivers and being near them. I think they are both exciting and relaxing. I like talking to people and finding out what they think and why. Have a great weekend! Hugs!

  6. I have that book on hold at the library, but there is a long wait. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, I always enjoy your answers.Have a great weekend!

  7. Still think the book looks good! 🙂 Happy weekend!

  8. Sounds very intriguing! Hope you enjoy reading them. As my book collection is not that large, I haven’t had to think about giving any book away but when I don’t want some books, I might host a second-hand book giveaway or donate them to some kids charity or something.

  9. Vicki, we just listened to A stranger in the Woods on a recent road trip. We thought it was pretty good but wanted to know more.

  10. I donate my books too — to my friends, family, neighbors, to AAUW, to charity, or to the library.

  11. I don’t have many books anymore as most (if not all) of my reading is done on my NookColor!

  12. I think I’ll be adding this to my tbr. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!
