As far as we know, they don't Twitter, but this is a savvy old-school complement to the growing stock of food trucks out there. The Miracle Bookmobile, which travels around the state accepting donations and giving away and books for free is currently in Los Angeles and will be making a scheduled appearance at Barnsdall Arts Park, according to Lucinda Michele at Metblogs.

"Anyone can take, read, and pass along a book-you never have to return them-so donations fuel their work. Keeping in the spirit of free exchange of information without censorship, they are particularly looking for LA local history, West Coast history, science fiction, graphic novels, zines, what they call 'priceless porn,' biography/memoirs, arts & crafts, 'everything queer,' books en Espanol, and 'anything that can be xeroxed and prepared for mass distribution and more!'" Michele explained.
