“We had a customer come in last week and say it was his birthday, hand us a $20 bill, and [tell] us to use it to buy books for the next kid who came in the store. The photographs explain the story. We love our customers!”
–Sally McPherson, owner, Broadway Books
The kids used the money towards a copies of The 5th Wave and Wreck This Journal. I love that they both remembered to wish their benefactor a happy birthday.
Thank you, Broadway Books, for sharing this happy story of generosity, community, and book loving. This is a birthday tradition I want to adopt.
