She’s nothing like the rest of us

Belle: Good Morning! I’ve come to return the book I’ve borrowed!

Book shop clerk: Finished already?

Belle: Oh, I couldn’t put it down. Got anything new?

Book shop clerk: Not since yesterday!

Yesterday, totally by accident, I discovered the most wonderful used bookstore. And it is located — get this — half a block from my office. 
I was heading back to the office after running an errand, and turned up a street I don’t normally use. It is the kind of bookstore I like best — where everything is crammed onto shelves, covered in dust. It’s like treasure-hunting.
I wandered around it in a happy daze. I scooped up three books in the few minutes I could spend there, and now I’m counting the minutes until I can go back at lunchtime.
Darling Husband had better get started on those built-ins — this could get ugly!

  1. Don’t you just love stores like that, where the books are piled to the ceiling? Amazing 🙂

So what do you think?
