The Story From A Broken Mind
Today I went to a book sale held at the Plumer house on Water Street in West Newton Pa. It was held by the West Newton Library. And let me tell you it sucked. I took two people with me and we visited around noon on Saturday 29th.
1st The parking was nonexistent with us having to park in the muddy grass. And there were no signs pointing the way or saying book sale here.
2nd As you walk in you are forced to by a bag before you even see a book. And as we tried to ask questions, a back log of people built up because the entrance is so small. The feeling of claustrophobia sets into you quick. And only gets worse as you try to find your way around the two rooms where they keep the books.
3rd In the two rooms there is not enough room for you to move around in. And the paths you could walk in where really small. Also you end up waiting for people to move or are the one being waited on. Or you just bumped into people because you didn’t see them behind you. Oh and the feeling of being rushed, for me, made me leave before the people I brought. And without buying a single book. Oh this one guy even reached right past my face to grab a book. Like if he didn’t I would steal it is something.
I am sure despite all the negatives I felt they do it for all the right reasons but I personally would like to not be going back. But I feel I must add that they people that where with me did not feel the same as me. And they were happy with the bag of books they got. And they were thankful that I took them to the book sale.
