The Special Book

“Hi. I’m the book that’s four rows down, and seven from the left.

I look similar to my fellow books, but I’m different. I’ve never been checked out.

Once a person picked me up and leafed through me, but she put me back.

For a while, I took it personally. I thought something was wrong with me. I smelled like mildew. I had an unattractive cover. I had a bad call number.

But I’ve accepted my fate. Now I’m happy to be with the other books. I enjoy watching people walk by. I like the buzzing sounds from the florescent lights.”
