"Open the pod bay doors, HAL." ~ 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Heidi's 25th birthday is this Friday, July 28th. Please send her a birthday email if you can.

A friend of mine at Books for Soldiers.com sent this message today. I have books collected to send and a box big enough to send them. If you have any books you don't need and you would like to donate, please bring them Friday night to the TMA Band Pot Luck Dinner (or any other time you think you might see me) and I shall add your books to the box. Looks like a good cause.

I noticed my booklist looks like too many classics and 'girlie' books. We need some Tom Clancey, World War II, Westerns and mayhem. Stuff getting blown up and all. Books on Christian subjects are great, too!

Hi Bookworm!

I have been writing and sending books to a soldier, Caleb, who is helping establish a 'library'at a remote base camp in Afghanistan. It is Camp Phoenix and there are 1,800 personnel there, mostly men. I wonder if you would be willing to send up a box or two, for their library?

They don't have the best access to the internet, so I thought I would request for them. I believe they are unaware of the "We've Got Books Ready to Ship" section on the BFS board.

Please let me know if you decide to do this, I will post the information in their thread under the Afghanistan posts.
