In the time since my last posting, I have been to many bookstores and perused several auctions – one was even online! – and came away with several good finds to add to my library. I even hung some new light blocking drapes (no one wants yellowed book pages). All things considered, it was an average week; however, something quite peculiar happened yesterday.
I received a letter with my daily post, but it had no return address or even postage. Whoever sent it must have stopped by themselves and slipped it in with the rest of my mail. I’ll be honest and say I don’t get many house guests, so it was quite upsetting to have been paid a visit by a stranger. After all, I’m still reeling from having had my house broken into and my library destroyed!
The letter was very short, reading as follows:
I have caught wind of some college student using your identity in a class that promotes destroying books! For a grade. Can you believe that? Anyway, her name is Sarah Goodnough. Maybe you should look into that.”
I haven’t the slightest idea who the writer of this letter is, but right now that is the least of my worries. Not only has my identity been stolen, but this girl is using it to do something I would never do! Such nerve. This is why I don’t like children.
