What treasures have you found in a Little Free Library?

At this stage of the game, I am much more likely to leave a book in a Little Free Library than I am to take one. I keep a sack of books on my front porch and, when I remember, grab a book to take with me on the dog walk. If I pass a Little Free Library (in my neighborhood it is hard not to), I open the door and pop the book inside.

Q-and-A with Steve Coll on 'America's Secret Wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan'

Author Steve Coll has covered Afghanistan for almost 30 years, an odyssey that began when The Washington Post dispatched him to India in 1989 to report on South Asia. His deep regional knowledge and dazzling investigative skills were showcased in his 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the C.I.A., Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001," a best-selling chronicle of Afghanistan's descent into violence and terrorism, beginning with the Soviet takeover of the remote country and ending the day before 9/11.
