July 13th, 2018: Traveler

Up in Union, CT, there's a very unique restaurant.

Quote:
Back in 1970, a restaurant called ‘Traveler’ opened its doors, offering not only delicious meals but books that you can take home with you for free. Sounds unbelievable, right? Who on earth would give away stuff for free? Well, as it turns out, the creator of this lovely little restaurant was a huge book lover, and after his house got completely filled with books, he decided to give most of them to his restaurant’s customers.


Quote:
In 1993, the owners of the restaurant changed, but they continued this beautiful tradition and even made it bigger. “We give away 1 to 2 thousand books a week. We have expanded it to three books per person. The books come from many sources. Library book sales are our best but our customers are a very big contributing factor, not a single day goes by that someone doesn’t bring us books.


Quote:
We have given away approximately 2.5 million books since we have been here.” The owner told Bored Panda. Yes, you heard it right, over 2 million books, and they are not planning to stop! “We have a horse trailer that we pick up books with. Some weeks we can go to 4 different libraries to pick up books. There is about 9 thousand books on our shelves for them to choose from.”

This is pretty cool for a thread I thought would be about Robert E. Lee's horse.

But what was the name of the Lone Ranger's nephew's horse?


A major award hangs in the balance!

The horse is one of the great characters in American literature.
