B&N Bookfair Supporting Lemons Mill Elementary
When I went to Barnes and Noble to study for my Physics exam, I saw a sign saying that there is a book fair event to support Lemons Mill Elementary School. As my sister and I walked in, there was a table display to our right that caught my attention. Usually authors visit Barnes and Noble to display and write their autographs on their published books. Since I didn’t see any books, I asked what the event was exactly for. They were teachers not authors. One of the teachers explained to us what was going on and she told us that we can win a $20 gift card if we signed up for the prize drawing contest. We wrote our names and put the paper in the container. We didn’t expect ourselves to win. A few minutes later, I went to ask them when they were going to start drawing out the names. They pick out names each hour. It turns out that they had already done it, but they didn’t announce the name since they didn’t want to pronounce my name wrong. They told me that I won a gift card! I was in a denial mode. The teachers told me that I could choose either the Barnes and Noble gift card or the Starbucks gift card. Forget Starbucks. I chose the Barnes and Noble Gift Card and I felt like I won the lottery. They really made my Saturday. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe was the book that I chose, and my sister chose the Sherlock Holmes classic book.
