I have a warm spot in my heart for the bookmobile of my youth. To me, it was a rolling candy store, a literary ice cream truck without the canned music and creepy tattooed guy handing out melted treats. Just a nice lady with loads of books. Yum!
This quiet video made me smile, with the story of one man and his mission to bring books to even the most remote areas of Columbia.
Luis Soriano has two donkeys, 4800 books, and what must be a big heart. Biblioburro, a truly off-road bookmobile. Because every child needs books to read, and someone to read to them.
