A great box of books from Darien Connecticut!

A group in Darien, Connecticut (Darien Book Aid, donates small boxes of books to those serving in Peace Corps assignments around the world.  I'm not sure how long they have existed, but all I had to do was to contact this lady, Peggy Minnis, and as soon as they had a set of donated books, they sent to us as a donation!  They did a great job of selecting a range of books; in fact, I will probably read many of them!  Some of the books are:  The Prince and the Pauper, Of Mice and Men, The Red Pony, The Odyssey, Caddie Woodlawn, The Spiderwick books, a couple of dictionaries, Treasure Island, and Pirates of the Carribbean among others.  It was a great box to open!!
