More Than I Bargained For

26 Apr

Ethan has been enjoying the “Spy Dog” series by Andrew Cope so when we saw another title (one which included another story on the flip side) we snapped it up.

When it arrived we got more than we bargained for…

A WHOLE box of the same title.  That’s FIFTY of the same book.

Seriously, we only wanted one.  We only paid the price of one.

Now begins the process of rectifying the situation with the supplier who has clearly made a bungle.

It could only happen to me.




Postscript:  The supplier just contacted me.  It’s no mistake.  I purchased a “stockpack” from World Book Day so the price and number of books was correct.  What a treat!  Now begins the fun of sharing them around.  Hubby has taken most of them for his class but the boys are now making lists of friends they’d like to give them too.

    What a treat is right! Wow!

    I love how the top book is ‘Pet Shop Panic’. It should have been ‘Book Store Panic’.

    I remember one year paying what I thought was a reasonable price in an online auction for a remote control car. We ended up with a box of four.

    Enjoy your abundance!

    Best wishes
