BookMooch and Prisons

As you know from a previous posting, I have been using BookMooch to trade used books. This week I received a mooch from “Prison Book Program“.

A quick search directed me to the web site explaining this is a non-profit organization that gives books to prisoners. I had no idea this organization existed. BookMooch seems like a perfect way for this organization to get books.

BookMooch has a charity page that lists the prison program as well as several other charities you can give your points to. I am going to give them a point (worth a book) for the one they spent getting a book from me!

You are probably wondering what book they requested… “199 Great Home Businesses You Can Start (and Succeed In) for Under $1,000.”

About the Author:

I started my career at a start-up, Sun Microsystems, and have been at start-ups ever since. Small companies are always short on people giving me the opportunity to travel extensively for both business and pleasure. Two foreign assignments in the UK led to 9+ years living abroad and accelerated the travel my family, and I was able to do. Although I have worked in Asia (including a year working for a Singapore HQ’d company), the Middle East and Africa, most of my foreign experience is in Europe, the CIS, and Russia.

    I was expecting something more along the lines of “199 Ways to Make a Hacksaw Out of a Toothbrush”.

    This is neat – and it is very cool that you posted a link.

    The choice in titles makes perfect sense. Its hard enough to compete for a job, let alone do it with a felony conviction and potentially years away from the job market.

    Entrepreneurship is the answer – and in promoting that spirit everyone wins…

    Industrious people, trying to distance themselves from past mistakes, who are vested in society – stand a much better chance of staying out of trouble.
