I always check the worn books that the library is getting selling off. Today—lo and behold—I discover Harry Potter and the Stone on sale! I’d been searching for over a month.
The sign says two books for 50c. Would they accept 25c for one?
Yes and no. I receive change, but only 20c. Has there been some mistake? No. It’s just that in the 5 years we’ve been out of the country New Zealand has gotten rid of its 5c coins.
Oh well, nothing lasts forever. Even my book has a loose page. But at least it’s hardback!
