World Book Night was an amazing night. I am incredibly grateful that was able to take part in such an event. I spent the evening carting around copies of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian in my little red wagon. I met some fabulous people and some horrible people. However, the award for best book recipient goes to a fantastically charismatic guy who I stopped while he was jogging. He was quite intrigued by my wagon of books, but didn’t want to carry one whilst jogging. He felt bad, so I told him I would go to great lengths to make sure he could get this book. He responded by saying he always goes to great lengths to get free things from people wearing Star Wars shirts. I told him I would tuck the book behind an ashtray in front of the hotel he was staying in and he agreed to the plan. When I eventually looped back around to the ashtray the book was gone and in its place was a note that read “got it.” All in all, it was a successful and wildly fun night.
Amazing story!! Thank you for that commitment :)
