Happy Reading

Y'all are my favorites, so I’m sharing my horribly long and bookish story. My apologies to you all. If you are not familiar with Goodwill: Goodwill is a second hand store. People donate items they no longer want and those items are sold for a small amount of money. It’s the only place I buy my books because I get them for only a dollar or two.

I now know beyond a shadow of doubt there is a book spirit. An other worldly presence that guides us to books. Today, I found this, at Goodwill. From time to time these strange feelings wash over me and say, “Go to Goodwill. Go to Goodwill. Go to Goodwill.” Every time I get that feeling I find one of my favorite books. If I say in my mind, “ I wish Goodwill had this book”, I find it within a month. Last week I literally said, “There’s no way in hell I will ever find ‘The Language of Flowers’ at Goodwill. This is how I know there is a supernatural force at work and it is helping me build an incredible library.
What you may not know is this is my second all-time favorite book. EVER. It would take the number one spot, but the number one spot is held by another title for sentimental reasons. It is the only reason this glorious little gem has not taken the golden title.
When I found the book at Goodwill I gasped, grabbed the bookshelf, closed my eyes and calmed my breathing. Then I began pumping my fists in the air and loudly exclaimed, "YES! YES! YES!”
I ran up to the front to pay and said to the two women, “I wanna share this with you. Normally, I hate it when people yap and yap in the check-out line, but I’m so excited I can’t stand it.” Holding the book up proudly I continue, “This is my second all-time favorite book. EVER. I never thought I would find it here.” My voice catches and little tears leak from my eyes. “I can’t believe you have it. Wow, I can’t believe how emotional I am.” We all began to laugh and the one worker said, “That’s amazing. Now you own it and I’m so glad you did find it here. With such a glowing review I’m going to have to go to the library and check it out.” We laughed a little more and she said, “Are you gonna go home and curl up on the couch and start reading?” I laughed really hard and said, “No. The book is so emotionally traumatic, there’s no way I can possibly read it right now.” More laughter. The clerk said, “Well then, I guess you can place it on your coffee table and stare at it lovingly until you’re ready.”
