I spent my morning doing a creek “extreme” creek cleanup near my house. PSA (That has nothing to do with books, but it’s important anyway): If you’re hiking, walking, etc….throw you trash in a designated receptacle or take it out with you to throw out or recycle. The majority of what I found were disposable plastic water bottles. Better yet, get a reusable water bottle and fill it up from the tap (in most places in the U.S tap water is perfectly safe to drink for most people (i.e. those with out compromised immune systems).
Anyway…I’m off to read again in 15 min (12:45 pm EST).
