Vide – Ohs: Old Dead Tree Reincarnated as Library

Through our travels we have seen a number of “little libraries.” These are sidewalk structures used to house a “give and take” book collection to help encourage reading and literacy.

Sharalee Armitage Howard turned her century-old dead cottonwood tree into a free lending library.

From the YouTube webpage:

This is an awesome project. A Coeur d’Alene artist found a unique way to repurpose an old and decaying tree in her front yard. She has turned the tree stump into a Little Free Library. It’s a free book exchange designed to encourage reading.

Humor: Book on Sale – A Very Special Edition

There I was listening to a photography podcast that mentioned the book, The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking by Edward B. Burger and this piqued my interest. Once the podcast was over, I immediately went online to search for this volume.

Wow! This must be a special edition. Perhaps the hardcover has a solid gold binding or the MP3 CD is likely a platinum edition. What puzzled me most however was the Kindle edition. [Look at the prices outlined by the red rectangle.]

Thinking perhaps I could find the “standard edition,” I changed the wording of my search terms a bit and indeed, I found the “normal” pricing one might expect.
