I have to disown my nephew

Today is his 12th birthday. I called to wish him a happy birthday.

He was telling me all about school and how there's one girl who likes him but he doesn't like her and all the other girls are book huggers. The horror!

It doesn't bode well since we got him a book for his birthday. We put a twenty between some of the pages but he actually has to open it to find it.

I found a twenty in a copy of 'Catcher in the Rye' once.

Lol I don't but books unless it's one they want. I'll buy books year round for readers that's the best thing when I was growing up someone buying me books. Couldn't get enough of them.

The person who buys the book at a yard sale ten years from now will be thrilled!

I may but the money under the front cover or have it stick out a bit if it is in the middle of the book.  I would call or text his parents that you also put money in the pages of the book.  Or leave a cryptic note on the card that he needs to search the pages of the book.

Something like "May the pages of this book BUY you a good time too!"
