Like a kid in a candy shop…

If I was magically gifted a vast quantity of money but could only spend it in one shop, it would have to be a book shop.

Walking over to the engineering department today, I decided that it would be warmer to walk through the arts centre, however, doing so took me past a window with that fateful sign in it: "Book sale, 20% off".

Spoilt for choice.

Wandering down the isle, I decided to see if they had "The Salmon of Doubt" by Douglas Adams. I've been after it for a while, and a friend reminded me of it again recently. Two copies on the shelf. Randomly, I picked one of the two. Walking towads the till I look down at the price…"DAMAGED!" It said on the label. And it had two pounds taken off the price. The damage consisted of a slight dent in the cover. And I still got 20% off. Bargain.

So, by randomly walking into the bookshop, I actually saved money. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  2. The great DNA was fantastic. If you haven't read them yet also check out the dirk gently books. "Last chance to see" was his personal favourite, and is currently on my 'list'.
