Book Exchange

On Sunday we were at the Dunn Brothers coffee closest to us. I really like Dunn Brothers - good coffee, general focus on the customer with more than your average number of comfortable chairs, toys for the kids, books and magazines lying around, cheap refills...it's all good. This Dunn Brothers had a book exchange, a book shelf where you could just pick and book and walk off with it, for good. You were encouraged to leave books as well, but it wasn't a swap - it was a communistic take according to your need, give according to your ability, sort of system. Given the nature of the system, I was a bit confused that the top shelf contained no less than four Oliver North books (by Oliver, not about him). Seems at odds with the ideal. But maybe things all work a bit differently down in Lakeville.
