I was recently discussing "must read" books with a friend and she mentioned The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace.
She described this book as a must read, but she warned me that I might be tempted to throw it across the room a time or two.
Of course, I was intrigued, so I went straight home and ordered it.
We also talked about Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas, and she recommended it as well, and I ordered it, too.
So today, when I saw two packages in my mailbox, I assumed both books had arrived at the same time. I was surprised to see, though, that there were two identical copies of Sacred Marriage.
I checked my Paypal account and I had only been charged for one, so I composed a quick email explaining that there must have been a mistake and offering to send one back.
A "customer care coordinator" emailed me back and expressed great appreciation for my honesty. They had actually been searching high and low for that particular book (their last copy) that was meant for another customer, but they had finally ordered another one from a retailer when it couldn't be found.
She said that maybe the extra book "belongs with you. Maybe you know of someone who would benefit from a copy of their own or you know of a church or other organization that would put it to great use."
So, I thought I would give it away here on the blog.
If you would like a brand new copy of Sacred Marriage, leave a comment and I will choose someone to receive it.
