The Dewey Tree

Lisa Roe, better known in the book-blogging world as The Online Publicist, has come up with a wonderful idea to honor the memory of a lady whose sudden death was a shock to all of us a few months ago. Dewey was a "community organizer" in the best sense of that phrase - she could have taught those who abuse that job title a whole lot about what is right and what is wrong in the world.

Lisa suggests that Dewey's fellow book-bloggers gather up a few of those hundreds of books we all have sitting around the house and pass them on to others in honor of what Dewey meant to our community. Details and suggestions can be found on Lisa's website, so please take a look there and help make this project a huge success.

Let's make sure that Dewey's good work continues forever. Thanks, guys.


  1. Thanks so much for supporting the project, Sam! I'm so thrilled to have you be a part of it.

  2. I think it's a wonderful thought and I hope that lots of folks take you up on it. I surely do miss Dewey...she was a real community organizer.
