Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day here in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.
Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?
(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)
$50 Dollars, If my maths is correct(which its very likely not!), I reckon that's about £30. So what would I spend it on?
Well, I'd probably buy books. In fact there's no probably about it, I'd definitely buy books! I've just read Wicked by Gregory Maguire from the library. I really enjoyed this and would like to read the next two but the library doesn't have them, so I'd buy these. And I'd probably have to buy Wicked too because I can't just have part of a series. That's just not right!
So if I went to the bookshop with £30 now, that's what I would intend to buy. Whether that's what I would buy when I got there is another matter all together. I could quite easily get sidetracked and buy something else entirely!
And $500 (£300), can I get away with saying I'd buy more books! Well I could quite easily spend that much on books, but I'd probably spend that on a laptop Dylan. He's off to our grammar school in September, and I've promised him he can have his own by the time he goes because he did so well to get in. So I'll have to find this money anyway, but it would just be nice if it was a unexpectd windfall!
