In one of the updates for the kickstarter, I asked people who are they going to give their books to.   Here is the full update.

Some of the suggestions:

  - sisters

  - brothers

  - master gardeners

  - "friends who are likewise into this kind of stuff."

  - "giving one to each of my kids"

  - "one to one of my favorite homesteading pals"

  - "I'm going to affix BookCrossing.com stickers to them and leave them for other people to discover."

  - " gift this to my husband."

  - neighbors

  - girlfriend

  - family

  - "my dentist's office"

  - "some folks that were vendors in the farmers market"

  - "like-minded eco-nerds"

  - "to other architects"

  - " to our local library"

  - "to my grandkids school library"

  - "to as many libraries in my area as will accept them!"

  - "Some friends who need nudging"

  - "I like the idea of leaving it someplace, with a note to share its travels."

  - "thank you gifts to the volunteers who come here to offer workshops"

  - "a few people that are looking to start the change"

  - "Putting in a note to say something like read, implement, sign, and then give the book to someone else when they are done with it, kind of the real deal 'Pay it Forward'"

  - "including at church"

  - "There are a couple of houses around here with "Little Free Libraries" that I may seed a copy into!"


Other interesting suggestions:

  - "I like the idea of marginalia as notes to future readers. I'll see if I can add anything of value in that way."

  - "I will definitely mark up my copy intensely. I will keep a copy in hiding in case 'my' copy grows legs."

I got 7 copies of the book. One is a personal copy, signed by the authors, the other 6 aren't signed.
Now I have two copies left, one of them is for a friend I'll surely meet in person soon. The other one is my personal copy. I think I'll lend that one to my sister first and then later to others (who'll give it back to me after reading).
The other copies I sent out in different directions as gifts to persons who do interesting projects where they meet a lot of people who might be interested. I made it clear the books are for passing on, by filling in my name on the list first and then the name of the person I sent it to.
