Confused – April 1

This weekend I went to my hometown library, the one where I borrowed every Nancy Drew book, and when I had finished those, lit into the less satisfying Hardy Boys and Cherry Ames series. I had recently discovered my library didn’t own a copy of ONE GOOD DEED. I suffered through a range of emotions, of course, chief among them miffed and pained. So I drove over and gifted them one, inscribing it “A Devoted Cardholder Since 1962.”

There’s a tiny part of my heart that worries that this was shameless self-promotion. But I had noticed that a couple of the surrounding towns had copies of my book, and that they were often checked out. So…gifting this was a good deed, right?

Sharing is good.

    Anyone who dedicates themselves to making the planet a nicer place to live is not depicting “shameless self-promotion”. Rather, hope and an example of how we can all behave in a kind and caring manner. Thank you, once again for leading us down the path of “goodness”! Have a good day!

    Hey,I thoroughly enjoyed your book and I think you did a Good Deed making sure that if someone else wanted a good read at that library…they can now get it!! I think it is a great addition to their library.

    How can it be a “shameless self-promotiom” when they are going to borrow it free from the library? Maybe more will follow your lead and try to do One Good Deed each day….it’s all good!!

    What? I asked them if they were getting your book last year! And was told they would look into it. I’m sorry I didn’t follow up-and no-not shameless self promotion–another GOOD DEED!
