A group in Darien, Connecticut (Darien Book Aid, firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!!
