Community English library - In the footsteps of Benjamin Franklin

I have been reading the biography of Benjamin Franklin, and I thought it would be a good idea to have a Community English library.

Each person would list 10-15 books that he or she would be willing to lend out.
Every person in the library lists their books.
When someone wants to borrow a book, then they would contact the person, go there and borrow the book. Then return it to where it came from. People can put books in any language on their list.  Mark your books with your name and contact details.

Put your list on the comments section of this post.
If this ends up to be a big concern, then I will open a website and each person can get a page to list their books.



What do you think?  I think it is a great idea and a better alternative to buying books and trying to sell them back.

If people want, they can also use this system for school books.

Good luck and have fun reading books!

View of the Russian Convent in Eini Kerem.

I don't usually post pictures of churches on this blog, but I have seen this from afar many times.  When you are driving to the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital, this view keeps popping up so you might get distracted by the view.  You might wonder about the golden dome church and why it is up there?

Well this link: http://www.biblewalks.com/Sites/RussianEinKerem.html  Will tell you all about it.
If you want to go to visit, remember that visitors are not allowed inside the church, but the view and the exterior might be enough to justify the trip.

Since you have to go into the Hadassah Hosiptal complex, you will have to pay the parking fee for the hospital, so don't be surprised.

Have a good trip!

Take a walk in Jerusalem! Looks Mediterranean, doesn't it?




Take a walk in the afternoon in Jerusalem, this scene reminds me of a place in other  Mediterranean countries.  In the fall, there will be grapes on the branches,  You can pick one to eat while you walk.
I welcome you to Jerusalem!
