Because I’m quite ambitious with my reading selections, I’ve decided to finally read one of the greatest novels ever written – Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo.
Thinking that it would be quite easy to find, since it is one of the pillars of classic literature, I was quite surprised when I couldn’t find a copy of it in the 2 different bookstores I recently went to.
Because I was so happy with one of my local bookstore’s online shopping service, which proved so reliable with my last order, I decided to use it again today.
I was quite surprised when the search result turned out to be:
I would think that any respectable bookstore would have a well-stocked “Classics” section. I didn’t even consider that the bookstores I’ve visited wouldn’t have Les Miserables in stock. Strange.
The search continues…
