Do You Know What February 14th Is? Other Than That.

The croc and boy have spoken. February 14 is International Book Giving Day. You can give a book to a child. You can donate a book to a place that could use it. Or you could just leave a book in a waiting room or lobby with a note that says “This book isn’t going to take itself home”.
