    Great idea and way to raise more funds for Alzheimer’s research. Just gave a few pounds.

    I just donated 2 pounds to this cause. Every little bit helps.

    My mom lies in a nursing home afflicted with late stage Alzheimers. For someone who worked her whole life for the comfort of others its particularly unfair and incredibly difficult to watch as she succumbs to it’s effects.

    Being a huge sci-fi/fantasy lit fan this is a no-brainer (no pun intended) for me.

    Fantastic idea, TP has given me a lot of pleasure of the last 30 years, and i think any contribution that can help this insidious disease has got my backing

    What a great idea – $1 per book seemed good to me.

    We wanted to go beyond our earlier donation to the Alzheimer’s Association (the American research charity), so my husband and I have put one of Terry’s rarest books, Once More With Footnotes up for sale on eBay.

    This is a charity sale, and 100% of the profits automatically go to the Association when the sale is complete (which is cool, because it means we don’t ever have to play with the money). We will ship internationally, of course.

    Great idea.
    I’ve linked to you, donated, and blogged it myself, with a suggestion that other bloggers spread the word too, maybe this really could work.

    All of us, I think, know someone who has lost their mind in some way.

    I’ll be donating in a few days.
