I'm not a religious man. Far from it. I understand why it exists and why people believe, but it's just not my thing. Reading this short story by Andy Weir (here it is in video form, if that's more to your liking) kinda makes me wish it was.

It's the literary equivalent to the neighborhood lemonade stand - Little Free Library will sell you (or show you how to build) a small post-mounted honor library that you can set up in your front yard and share works with your neighbors. Very very cool.
