My favourite sale of the day was made by a 10 year old girl named Julie. She first came by with her dad and looked at my book. She sidled up to her dad and whispered to him. He said “Let’s have a look around first.” About an hour later she was back for another look. They left again.
Awhile later, she was back again and said her choice was down to my book and one from another booth. Could she read the back blurb again? Of course! She read it and left.
This time, within minutes, she was back and asked if she could read a paragraph. I smiled and said, “Please do”. She opened the book at random and began to read. Her dad watched as she read the first page, moved on to the next and then turned the page and kept reading. He got out his wallet.
