Book Donations

NPR's Andrea Seabrook visits Russell Wattenberg, who gives away thousands of used books every week from a row house in Midtown Baltimore. Wattenberg runs The Book Thing, using small donations from ordinary people and the occasional large grant from a foundation. But Wattenberg now operates on a week-to-week because corporations have made changes in their charitable giving since September 11th.
