A few weeks ago I brought my brother to a physical therapy appointment. As we sat down, I noticed a book shelf in the corner that said “Leave a book, take a book.” I loved how simple this was, yet how much “the book switch” isn’t done anymore.
By writing “Leave a book, take a book,” you are encouraging reading. You are encouraging people to try a new book. You are encouraging bringing back paper books. I know in waiting rooms people usually use something to occupy themselves…but lately it seems like all people use to entertain themselves is their phones.
Encourage reading books. It is not a lost art.
You can make a difference. Using something just as simple as a book case and a note can make a change.
