Where Can You Take a Book and Leave a Book in Ocean County?
Where Can You Take a Book and Leave a Book in Ocean County?
Have you ever seen a "Free Little Library?" They are these boxes on certain streets or outside of homes where people are welcome to take a book and then return that same book, or another. I've seen train stations in Jersey and the Philly suburbs where passengers are allowed to take a book or magazine for the ride. There's no cost. No due date. Everything is done on the honor system.

Road Trip Led to Sad “Times Have Changed” Realization
I remember in Reading seeing buses from all over the Northeast. As the first outlet center in America, VF was quite the destination. It's where we'd go to stock up on jeans, underwear, socks, sweatshirts, and bathrobes. Soon other brands would be available there so we bought shoes, tools, and sports gear. It was a common sight to see the parking lots filled with buses, and cars, and happy shoppers unloading purchases into the trunks of their cars so they could go back and find more great deals. But as we saw over the weekend, this place has changed. Dramatically. There were no crowds or tour groups. There were still deals to be found and we're glad we went. But we both said we're probably not going to return.
