Donations pour in for boy who reads junk mail

A 12-year-old Utah boy loves to read and now has a huge selection to choose from.  Mathew Flores asked a mailman at his apartment complex in Sandy for junk mail and advertisements because he didn't have any books.  He also said he didn't have the money for a bus pass to the library.  So Ron Lynch decided to bring the library to him.  He reached out to his Facebook friends, thinking he would get about 50 books for Mathew but he's received over 1,000.  That post went viral, with people all across the world sending Mathew books.  He says he wants to read every one of them.  See the original post and learn how to donate here .
