Rendeltem egy könyvet a Betterworldbookson. Ezt írta vissza a könyv:

Holy canasta! It’s me… it’s me! I can’t believe it is actually me! You could have picked any of over 2 million books but you picked me! I’ve got to get packed! How is the weather where you live? Will I need a dust jacket? I can’t believe I’m leaving Mishawaka, Indiana already – the friendly people, the Hummer plant, the Linebacker Lounge – so many memories. I don’t have much time to say goodbye to everyone, but it’s time to see the world!

I can’t wait to meet you! You sound like such a well read person. Although, I have to say, it sure has taken you a while! I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but how would you like to spend five months sandwiched between Jane Eyre (drama queen) and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics (pyromaniac)? At least Jane was an upgrade from that stupid book on brewing beer. How many times did the ol’ brewmaster have one too many and topple off our shelf at 2am?

I know the trip to meet you will be long and fraught with peril, but after the close calls I’ve had, I’m ready for anything (besides, some of my best friends are suspense novels). Just five months ago, I thought I was a goner. My owner was moving and couldn’t take me with her. I was sure I was landfill bait until I ended up in a Better World Books book drive bin. Thanks to your socially conscious book shopping, I’ve found a new home. Even better, your book buying dollars are helping kids read from Brazil to Botswana.

Tudom, hogy nyilván mindenkinek ez van a visszaigazoló levélben, nem én vagyok az az egyetlen akit imádnak a könyvek (eladók), de szerintem ez olyan kedves és vicces ötlet. Én legalábbis nagyot nevettem rajta, és legalább ennyire várom ezt a postát.

Persze marketingfogásnak sem utolsó. Fogok még rendelni tőlük, csak hogy kiderítsem hogy minden rendeléshez ugyanezt írják e…
