PURCHASED – Audiobook
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
HEAD-SCRATCHER OF THE WEEK
The Great Controversy by E.G. White: When I got my mail last night, this book was just sitting loose inside my mailbox. I was so puzzled. How did the mailman know that this belonged to me when there was no packaging? And then I saw the little card included in the picture above addressed to “Current Resident” on the other side. I have never received “junk mail” in the form of a book before. The information on the card claims that has been read by “tens of millions.” Tens of millions….what? I’m thinking it’s not humans, since I’ve never heard of it before, and a quick peek at the GR page shows a grand total of 64 reviews. I peeked inside the book and saw pages that are so thin that they’re transparent and font that is bound to induce a migraine (barely any spacing and no margins.) This paperback is 374 pages, while the hardcover is listed at 719, so they went to great lengths to jam this into as few pages as possible.
Did anyone else get this in the mail this week? I’m curious if this is a national promotional effort. Oh, and if anyone in the US wants it, leave a comment, and I’ll be happy to mail it. 🙂
Let me know what hit your shelves this week!
