Friday Fortune #4
Welcome to the fourth edition of Friday Fortune!
What is Friday Fortune? On Wednesdays and Sundays, my posts are generally serious and focus on specific aspects of writing or even life in general. Fridays are here to mix it up a bit. On Fridays, you’ll be surprised with giveaways, free snippets, general questions, and so much more! If you have any suggestions for questions I could ask or things I could do; let me know so we can make this interactive!
This week, it’s time for a general question to get to know all of you better! So, here goes:
All readers out there will know what I mean. You’re in the mall, just looking around, and then you spot a bookstore and decide to take a look inside. No harm done, right?
You start browsing the books and find one that piques your interest. Now is when it gets difficult. Are you able to be content with just that one book, or do you impulsively walk out with more than one book?
Going by that, here’s another question:
If you walk into a bookstore with a specific book in mind, do you end up leaving with others?
It’s always difficult for me. When I know I have a strict budget, it’s easier to stay away from books than it is when I have money to spend. During my vacation in England, I bought seven books in three different bookstores. One was a trilogy, one was a steal, and the other three were in a special three-for-five-pounds deal. How could I resist?
Share your stories if you have any, and let me know how you are when it comes to buying books! I’d love to hear about it.
Tune in next week for whatever I have up my sleeve for you in edition five of Friday Fortune.
