I once ordered a book from AbeBooks (one that I didn’t really need but a professor convinced us we would be stellar if we got it). I got a coupon from them, but the part I enjoyed more was the additional “information” tacked on. I just thought you all should know this, courtesy of AbeBooks:
Fact: Reading can make you a better conversationalist.
Fact: Neighbors will never complain that your book is too loud.
Fact: Knowledge by osmosis has not yet been perfected. You’d better read.
Fact: Books have stopped bullets – reading might save your life.
Fact: Dinosaurs didn’t read. Look what happened to them.
I like the last one especially. You don’t want to be a dinosaur! 🙂
