Wednesdays with Words (Miss Buncle's Book)


What fools the public were! They were exactly like sheep...thought Mr Abbott sleepily...following each other's lead, neglecting one book and buying another just because other people were buying it, although, for the life of you, you couldn't see what the one lacked and the other possessed.
This statement is so true. As the manager of a local Friends of the Library bookstore, my main job is to go through the donated books, price and shelf in the store. I can't begin to tell you how many fiction books that at one time were "Best Sellers" have the dust jacket tucked in the first few chapters and then never read beyond that point--way too many!


  1. Something I have wondered about since the birth of the Internet. I have read far too many 'recommended' books than ever before and often find myself wondering what the big deal about a book is.
