Give and Take

We love Boise, Idaho. Absolutely love it! On one of our regular walks, we discovered a new addition to the neighborhood, a Take a Book — Leave a Book stand. Completely weatherproof and chock full of good reads, I could hardly wait to get home, find a book, run back, and trade it in.


The give and take concept works beautifully in this context: Take one book. Leave one book. A delightful balance.

Their both important — give and take — yet sometimes they can be a bit unbalanced:

  • Some people giving while rarely taking
  • Others taking while rarely giving

What is your relationship with give and take?
