One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is the variety of interesting people with whom you get to interact and even make friends. And I’ve never even considered the blogosphere to be a place where you could make a significant impact on the rest of the world, unless you have, like, a hundred-million followers. But there are ways to make a difference and I am lucky to have become part of such a project.
It’s called The Book Notes Project and was started by Emma from A Wordless Blogger. It’s very simple really. We leave notes in books, be they in library books, books we donate or sell second-hand, some might even try to slip a note or two into new books in bookshops (that is, if we can get past security 😀 ).
What is on these notes, you ask? Very good question. Anything positive, motivational or uplifting we can think about that will make the recipient feel better about him- or herself. Imagine feeling down in the dumps and picking up a book in the library. You flip through the pages and a note falls out, saying you’re beautiful. Won’t that be nice?
That’s what The Book Notes Project is about. We’re just doing our part to spread some joy and positivity and eradicate all the nastiness out there.
Sound like something you’d like to get involved in? Then go visit the site using the link above where you will find all the necessary info.
A few of us are also going to contribute to a weekly blog on a variety of uplifting topics. You can check out today’s post here.
Come get involved and let’s make the world a nicer place to live in for all of us.

I’m glad you’re joining in on the fun! It’s great to see this project growing.
With all the criticism and overall negativity on the net the more there is of us spreading a positive message, the better.
Thanks for the comment and the follow.
Exactly. And as much as I read, I can tell you I think it would be exciting to find a message in a book!
You’re welcome and thanks to you too. 🙂
