Seen while running - Little Free Library

Unlimited candy, cookies, and sweets. Ice cream and pizza for dinner! And no discipline! That's life at Grandma and Grandpa's house - a kid's anarchic paradise! This week I'm reliving those summer weeks spent at my grandparent's house as a kid. I'm spending the week with Grandma and Grandpa - in Sun Prairie, WI (just outside of Madison) - helping out as my grandpa recovers from surgery.  

My mom and grandma know how much I love to run, so they scoped out a bike path for me that runs right behind the house. I've already run 25 miles on it and haven't run out of trail! It's awesome!

On my first trip out, I saw this curious little box:

There were about 20 books in the box - from kids' books to novels! Upon further investigation, I found out it was a Little Free Library - which is a mailbox full of books! The boxes are put up and maintained by a volunteer. Any one can take a book, and any one can drop one off. How cute is that? It's a worldwide project - and it all started right here in Wisconsin!
