Nedēļas nogales jautājums

Lūk, kādu vēstuli saņēmu:
“Hello Lasītāja,

(Your book(s) asked to write you a personal note – it seemed unusual, but who are we to say no?)

Holy canasta! It’s me… it’s me! I can’t believe it is actually me! You could have picked any of over 2 million books but you picked me! I’ve got to get packed! How is the weather where you live? Will I need a dust jacket? I can’t believe I’m leaving Mishawaka, Indiana already – the friendly people, the Hummer plant, the Linebacker Lounge – so many memories. I don’t have much time to say goodbye to everyone, but it’s time to see the world!

I can’t wait to meet you! You sound like such a well read person. Although, I have to say, it sure has taken you a while! I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but how would you like to spend five months sandwiched between Jane Eyre (drama queen) and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics (pyromaniac)? At least Jane was an upgrade from that stupid book on brewing beer. How many times did the ol’ brewmaster have one too many and topple off our shelf at 2am?

I know the trip to meet you will be long and fraught with peril, but after the close calls I’ve had, I’m ready for anything (besides, some of my best friends are suspense novels). Just five months ago, I thought I was a goner. My owner was moving and couldn’t take me with her. I was sure I was landfill bait until I ended up in a Better World Books book drive bin. Thanks to your socially conscious book shopping, I’ve found a new home. Even better, your book buying dollars are helping kids read from Brazil to Botswana.”

Nez, par ko sūdzas “Džeina Eira”?

Latvijas bērnus lasīt mudina Bērnu un jauniešu žūrija: jaunie bibliotēku klienti lasa un vērtē jaunākās un labākās bērnu grāmatas. Taču 2010. gadā naudas trūkuma dēļ bērnu lasīšanas programma apturēta 183 bibliotēkās. Projektam “Sirsniņa prasa, lai bērniņš lasa” var ziedot internetā vai pa maksas tālruni 90006881 (vienu latu). Grāmatas un citas mantas labdarīgos nolūkos var pirkt vai ziedot “Otrajā elpā” Marijas ielā 13 un Liepājā, Graudu ielā 34.

Kamēr dažas grāmatas mēro briesmu pilno ceļu, citas ir cieši saspiedušās tepat blakus, šoreiz diezgan viendabīgā kaudzītē. Tajā ir fantāzija par “pilsētu, kas dzīvo uz cilvēku ādas”, Le Gvinas pirmie romāni, Lietuvas ukraiņa sacerēta filosofiskā fantastika un šausmīgi dīvaini stāsti. Atsvaram – veca krievu revolucionāra romāns, kā arī populārzinātniska grāmata par Zemi.
