Fantastically Fun Fridays: July 11, 2013

It's been a while since we've done one of these posts, but it seems like a good thing for a mid-summer Friday when everything should just slow down and be a little lazy...

For starters, just a reminder: if you are interested in Ofir Touché Gafla's The World of the End, we are giving away a copy!  Full details about the giveaway are available here--good luck!

Yesterday, I was driving around, and I came across this:

So, for starters, this is a Little Free Library--which is this awesome program that started in Wisconsin that is pretty much just what it says it is.  Individuals or organizations can set up and care for these library boxes, and the books inside are free for anyone to take.  You can return the books you take, and even contribute some of your own.  It's designed to promote a sense of community, as well as increase literacy.

On top of that, many of the Little Free Libraries are unique works of art--and this one that I found seems to be a TARDIS!  I was quite excited, particularly since it was almost in my own neighborhood.

Here are some of the other fun things we found for you this week:

Have a great weekend, everyone!  And don't forget to enter the giveaway by midnight tonight.
