Book of the Hump Club

I’m constantly blown away by the ways the Web keeps making the world smaller. Here’s a new favorite:

Though The Camel Bookmobile (HarperCollins, April 2007) is a
novel, the camel-borne library actually exists. It operates in Kenya’s
isolated Northeastern Province near the unstable border with Somalia.
It brings books to a semi-nomadic people who live with drought, famine
and chonic poverty. The books are spread out on grass mats beneath an
acacia tree, and the library patrons, often barefoot, sometimes joined
by goats or donkeys, gather with great excitement to choose their books
until the next visit.

Thanks to to Sylvia Gimenez, my first boss at eMarketer, for the link. You can send books directly or buy them via an Amazon wishlist.
