She was only part-time. But she was a reader and that made her the one to seek at the used bookstore. She shelved the books, knew the inventory. She would take your number and call if a title came in. It was a neighborhood of readers that was clear from the turn-over. There were often several copies of any best seller. But it was the others I sought. She shared in my delight. She said, "I see my favorites come in and I think well, we could be friends, except how is it possible to give these up!"

Very nice one.
I am experiencing the same thought. - Being a reader, too.

It's been years since I used to trawl the used bookstore looking for hidden treasures. You've made me want to take up the practice again. Very well done, D.M.

But books should be for sharing and they will come back around eventually. Nice one. :)
