"A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting."

Submitting this to various book-themed blogs I know. Tab for a Cause is a Chrome extension (supported by John Green, by the way) that awards you a “heart” every time you open a new tab. You can then donate hearts to your choice of a handful of causes. Which is awesome enough. But this week, they are also donating to Room to Read for each person who joins! If you see this, please consider joining!
If you wanna use my recruitment code, use this url instead. http://tabforacause.org/?r=11041971&c=8 That gives me 250 extra hearts to donate, which is about 3-4 days worth. So that would be extra awesome of you.
