I love reading books. Any topic that is worthy of my time and effort would be okay with me. But I'm not gonna' share a story that I've read on a book today but how books lead me to my "Precious Dollar Bill". While I was scanning books to buy at a local bookstore, a novel caught my attention and while I am thoroughly scrutinizing each page I was amazed and shocked at the same time to find a 5 dollars bill carefully kept between 2 pages. I was wondering if the first owner of the book forgot that the bill was there or did he/she even check the book before selling it. Another assumption is that he/she practically put that bill on the book as a charm or gift for the next owner (just guessing).
Well, whatever maybe the case, she/he made me happy the day I found it. Not because I am after the money (anyway it's just a small amount) but it's the situation that made me feel that I was so blessed that time. Imagine, there could have been someone who discover it before me but it seems like it's waiting for me (what a lucky charm for my wallet). I ended up buying the book (the story is good anyway). The good news is that, I got a book, I found my "precious dollar bill" and I was reimbursed for the price I paid for the book. (lol)
