Giving away books

Why I've always wanted to become a librarian:
"People can be changed by books, and that's scary. When I was working in the school library, I'd sometimes put a book in a kid's hands and I'd feel excited for them, because I knew that it might be the book that changed their life. And once in a while, you'd see that happen, you'd see a kind of light come on behind their eyes. Even if it's something like 0.4% of the population that that ever happens to, it's got to be worth it, hasn't it?"
I suppose if I can't be a librarian, I can at least be a book-giver.
(From "The Secret Life of Libraries":
