Check out the challenge here:
Her love of books had made her the ideal candidate.
Her proud boast had been that she had read every book in the school library, fiction, non fiction, historic or otherwise, though she admitted somewhat tongue in cheek that none had been in a foreign language!
Mr Denby was housebound and somewhat of a recluse, but had a private library for which he required a qualified librarian.
He chuckled at her quip, confident that she would never be able to read all of the books in his.
‘The job’s yours if you want it, but before you accept, could you just put those two books away for me please? The library is the third door on the left down the corridor.’
‘Pride and Prejudice, and Lord of the Rings. Now there’s a contrast!’ she said.
Mr Denby smiled. ‘See you in a bit……’ and wheeled himself to the window.
Confident and pleased, Harriet picked them up.
The library door opened silently, and Harriet was equally silent when she entered.
Either in awe or shock she wasn’t sure as she realised that this was just the ‘A’s.
She and Mr D were going to get on just fine.
