Book month

Fainjin came bounding out of his classroom waving a green slip of paper.  “Mama!  I got five dollars for a book!”

March is NZ Book Month, and every child at school was given a $5-off voucher for a book over $10 at certain booksellers.

Pearl soon arrived, with her own voucher, and a gleam in her eyes.  Her pocket-money goal is a new book, and this voucher will knock more than a week off the time required to earn one.

I foresee happy hours spent at the bookshop selecting their treasures…
