You get an email from Amazon that someone sent you a gift card.
And the message from your friend is that she was going to send flowers to say thank you but she figured reading or free spending would be more appreciated. She didn’t need to send me something to say thank you, I didn’t expect it. Just the words were enough
I would have enjoyed having flowers. They are always a rare but nice surprise. But my friend knows me well. I’m definitely a massive book fan and they last forever or there abouts. So I’m loving that. Currently trying to remember when a book I’ve been looking forward to is coming out (I think it’s a week or two) and if I can wait till then to spend it. Or shall I go poking on Amazon and see what I can see?
It was a lovely surprise and made me smile.
I sometimes tell people that I don’t finish every book I start because life is too short to read bad books. Unfortunately life is also too short to read all the good books. I’m making it my goal to read as many of them as I can though! So far this year I’ve read 71. And I shall use the giftcard to buy the books that may form part of books 72 and beyond in 2014 (am aiming for 100 this year having decided that last years 140 is a feat I don’t want to aim for again).
Sarah, Thank YOU!
