Congress Does Good

I am doing a review today, but I just wanted to mention one amazing thing that happened this week. In the middle of all that mess in Washington, Congress managed to pass the CPSIA reform bill... meaning that the lead laws now EXCLUDE "ordinary" books as well as used children's products... so it seems that those fears of old books languishing in landfills can be shed for now. (Anyone who knows more than me, who thinks I might be reading this thing wrong, let me know!) To read the bill, click here. To find out more about what all sorts of cool people having been doing to help save books, small businesses and more, click here.

There is still much to be done, but kudos to all those who pushed to make this happen!
