The book theme for April is "Living More with Less". I just received Mary Carlomagno's book Give It Up! My Year of Learning to Live Better with Less through Interlibrary loan. The book comes to me by way of the Boxford (Massachusetts) Town Library. Carlomagno decides to give up one thing each month for the course of one year. The impetus for this is being hit on the head by "an avalanche" of her own shoes. She likens each month of denial to Lent, and points out that the Catholic church expects that changes made during lent should be life changing.
