That’s how Waterstones sells some of its books here. It has almost always happened that the third book (lowest priced) that you get free is the most difficult. To choose, i.e.
For few reasons then, I ended up choosing The Shakespeare Secret by J. L. Carrell. One, because the title and the blurb were interesting. Two, because the shop was going to close soon, and I didn’t want let go of the free book. I had already chosen two books. Lastly, I have been reading too much of heavy stuff in the last few days – I needed that break.
Read something utterly fiction.
I picked it up, store was closing soon.
I put it down, unknown writer.
I picked it up, Da Vinci Code-type adventure book.
I put it down, didn’t have a “pick me up” feeling about it.
I picked it up, Shakespeare stuff.
I paid for the books.
I remembered, I have to do some more shopping, someday, soon. I have to get one of these, or all of these. Half weekend over, half shopping over.
The Shakespeare Secret should be my solace on this solemn Sunday.
