It's a little early yet for Halloween, but here's a website for a local nonprofit that I just found: Books for Treats advocates giving "gently read" books, instead of candy, for Halloween. As the site explains, "Books feed children's minds, while candy only feeds their cavities."

Right now the program is focussed on San Jose, where it has the support of the Mayor and City Council, but there's no reason why people can't implement this idea across the country using the tools provided on the website.

Of course, as someone with a book to sell, I think this is a great idea. I think Aaron's Intifada might be a bit much for the little kids, however. Maybe you should order a few as a treat for the parents...
