Something I’ve always wanted to happen just happened.
Someone delivered a giant box of random used books to my doorstep for no real reason! WIN!
I’ve always wanted a huge load of someone else’s books from like an estate or storage or something. Imagine the delicious hours sorting through them. The unusual new finds.
I never want anyone I love to die, but I would love to receive an entire collection of book I wouldn’t ordinarily pick myself and spend months discovering them and deciding what to do with them, like if I got someone’s estate. Thousands of books picked out by someone other than me, over many years… what I might find!
Maybe someone downsizing? I just want truckfulls of books to pull up to my house and disgorge heaps of treasure.
#2: My parents occasionally pack boxes of books that are not mine and drive them to me at Christmas. I have all my sister’s old teen romances, and a bunch of random Edward Lear stuff I don’t recognize.
