Apparition.

Apparition.

Noun

A supernatural appearance of a person or thing, especially a ghost; a specter or phantom.

A lady walked into the store for the first time earlier last week and asked for Blue ocean strategy.

We recognized the book as we had picked up the fucker about 3 years ago, read it and shelved it to collect dust.

While looking for the book we could not just find the damned fucker.

Take a request for the book by the customer and vow to get back to her ASAP.

Ask the lady if she would like to read anything else.

She said she had read some Baldacci and really enjoyed it.

Our response was a little extreme, this happens at times and we cannot control ourselves at times… “Why do you want to read that rubbish where there are so many other better books?”

She relents and says she is open to suggestions.

A pile of books are suggested and two winners were there from the lot If on a winter’s night a traveler by Italo Calvino and Slaughterhouse five by the awesome Kurt Vonnegut. 

Step out for a well earned coffee and by the time I am back the lady is billing the two books.

Have a short conversation with her about some books and while speaking to her, I kid you not about this…

The only book visible glowing among a rack of books behind her in the background was The Blue Ocean Strategy.
