The astro book drive for Nepal has been commenced successfully. Nepal Astronomical Society (NASO) has received seven parcels of books. As NASO has been working in the field of astronomical development in Nepal, Astro book drive has been considered very important for its enhancement. The book drive is very essential to the people who have no direct reach to astronomy books. NASO would like to express its deep gratitude to Joan Chamberlin, jpl solar system ambassador of NASA; Jim Beidient from citizen sky; Dwight Lanpher; Ian Durham; Kirk Rogers; Alan Goff; Tim Brown; Sheri Breaux; Kristina Burnham; Steve Innes; Mike Uberty; Edward Antkowiak; Christine Marshall; George Whitney; Bob Dyer; Southern Maine Astronomers; Astronomical Society of Northern New England; St Anselm College in New Hampshire and all other associated persons who helped with this by sending books and by raising funds for sending those materials. Last but not the least, NASO would like to thank Thilina Heenatigala for making all this happen by founding the Astrobook drive.
