of kindness, completely unlooked for blew me away.
This book I had got from the library and planned to read over Christmas. Having read Andrew Miller’s book
‘Now We Shall Be Entirely Free’
I had put a request in for
‘Pure’ which I was saving to savour as my Christmas read. A cunning plan: however when I came to renew it on-line, it was due to be returned on 23 December, I found as a request had been made I was unable to renew. Should I hang on to it and pay the fine or take it back and immediately put in another request? I decided I would enable the next person to enjoy the book over Christmas so today a couple of days early I took it back. I explained what I was proposing, the chap on the desk said as we were this close to Christmas and I would in the normal course of events be able to renew for just one week if a request was registered, he would allow me the week and as the library was closed over Christmas and new year I would have time to read at leisure the much anticipated book.
How I managed to not jump over the counter and give him a huge Christmas kiss I’ll never know...
I’m such a tart!
