I pick up most of my library books from the hold shelf rather than the stacks. Along with the book comes a piece of paper with my name on it which, after having checked out the book, I fold into quarters and use as a bookmark. It’s quite handy. But imagine my surprise when I received a text message from my friend across town. What are the odds?
Well, not as wild as one would think. We are both in the same book group and that book was on our list for the monthy. And there are only 10 copies at the library, so that narrows the chances a bit. But still, funny that she would get the book right after me and a fun text-message surprise for my afternoon.
ps. We both liked the book.
