Brevskrivande böcker.

Better world books, bokhandeln som jag hittade häromdan och som även Enligt O tipsade om, vet verkligen hur de ska tillfredsställa sina litteraturälskande kunder:

Hello Lingonhjärta

(Your book(s) asked to write you a personal note - it seemed unusual, but who are we to say no?)
Holy canasta! It's me... it's me! I can't believe it is actually me! You could have picked any of over 2 million books but you picked me! I've got to get packed! How is the weather where you live? Will I need a dust jacket? I can't believe I'm leaving Mishawaka, Indiana already - the friendly people, the Hummer plant, the Linebacker Lounge - so many memories. I don't have much time to say goodbye to everyone, but it's time to see the world!

I can't wait to meet you! You sound like such a well read person. Although, I have to say, it sure has taken you a while! I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but how would you like to spend five months sandwiched between Jane Eyre (drama queen) and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics (pyromaniac)? At least Jane was an upgrade from that stupid book on brewing beer. How many times did the ol' brewmaster have one too many and topple off our shelf at 2am?

I know the trip to meet you will be long and fraught with peril, but after the close calls I've had, I'm ready for anything (besides, some of my best friends are suspense novels). Just five months ago, I thought I was a goner. My owner was moving and couldn't take me with her. I was sure I was landfill bait until I ended up in a Better World Books book drive bin. Thanks to your socially conscious book shopping, I've found a new home. Even better, your book buying dollars are helping kids read from Brazil to Botswana. 

But hey, enough about me, I've been asked to brief you on a few things:
We sent your order to the following address:

  1. Åh, det är ju helt underbart!

  2. Gud vad gulligt, vad glad jag skulle bli!
    *letar bland deras 2 miljoner böcker*

  3. Visst är det fint av dem! Det kan enbart vara riktiga boknördar bakom den här sidan.
    De har också verkligen allt. Förutom kanske svensk litteratur men har hittat som dem allt som jag tidigare inte hittat hos andra bokhandlarsiter.

  4. Helt underbart! Och bokhandeln är faktiskt en guldgruva. Tänk att man samtidigt kan hjälpa barn att lära sig läsa när man tillfredsställer sitt eget behov av böcker! Ska definitivt klicka hem böcker därifrån inom kort!

  5. Visst är det en fantastisk kombination!! Roligt också att kunna dela med mig av den fina bokhandeln :)
    (Deras rea är för övrigt helt livsfarlig! Hehe!)
