Hi Pam, just wanted to let you know that I donated 5 books to the Lemon Grove Branch library. They are:

* The Very Hungry Caterpillar Board Book
* Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
* Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women
* 1 of: Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You : Dr. Seuss's Book of Wonderful Noises (Bright and Early Board Books)
* 1 of: The Horse and His Boy (Narnia)

The Very Hungry Caterpillar wasn't on their list, nor was Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can you, but those were two of my very favorites as a kid. Also, in honor of my mother's birthday two days ago I got them a new copy of The Horse and His Boy because the site said their copy was falling apart, and it was my mom's favorite in the Chronicles of Narnia.

Thanks Pam, for doing so much for those around you. I may be a totally broke college student, but this is something I can afford.



I've never been called "Wicked" before...

Hi Pamie -- Blogger Extraordinaire!

Gretchen just reminded me that you are interested in seeing Peter Kaye's article about you and your wonderful program to get more books into San Diego libraries.  Here's the PDF file for the six-page newsletter I edit.  It was just mailed to about 1,000 households in Del Mar.  Please feel free to post it (or any part) on your WebPages.

Deep in the heart of Blogland dwells a mysterious messenger. Some say her X-rated ravings make her the Wicked Webmaster of the West. Others say she’s a clown because of her book, “Why Girls Are Weird,” and because of her irreverent screenplays. But librarians from Del Mar to Oakland see Pamela Ribon in a different light -- as a fairy godmother who has filled their shelves with hundreds of books...

Thanks for coming up with this terrific program!
