It’s happened to me a few times. I receive a warm and welcoming email from Amazon.
“We think you would love to read this book!”
I scratch my head. Arch my eyebrows in puzzlement. I read the email again and look at the book in question with deep fondness.
It’s my book.
You want me to read my own book.
Oh, go on then!😂
