I have never signed so many books in one day. I am pretty sure I signed over 300 books. In each I wrote:

There were so many very happy people! Book are very expensive in the islands. In Papua New Guinea the currency is 1/3 the Aussie dollar. And in the Solomon Islands it is 1/3 the PNG currency. So, a book that is $25 here is nearly $200 Solomon dollars. This is more than many islanders make in a week. So, a free book is a awesome gift!
I was very honoured and proud to be involved in such and empowering gesture of good will!
I am looking forward to hearing the stories of how "28 Stories" has been of use in churches, youth groups, schools and more!
