Last evening, when I was done with daily chores, I was busy writing a review for an e-book for my Kindle I bought on Amazon.com last week and have been reading it since then. The review was meant for a web service LubimyCzytac.pl as I believed the book was worthy mentioning in a public sphere like that...
I wanted to be as precise and correct as possible, so I searched for reliable data on the author and the book itself. I discovered that the author writes blog and i active on Facebook as well. I sent friend request with a slim hope that maybe one day he will be gentle and kind enough to accept it.
I barely finished uploading the review to the webpage, when I got notification on Facebook that my friend request was accepted by him and - to my much bigger and pleasant surprise - I got a personal message from him, surprised that I asked for his friendship, curious what made me to do so. This is how it went:
This morning I received yet another message from him and I responded as well:
So, the experience of reading his autobiography 'A Child al Confino' will truly be on another level...having conversed with the author himself and making virtual friends... I don't think I have ever experienced something like this before in my entire life.
Surely, my life has its generous share of pleasant surprises, appearing sometimes out of the blue, making my existence so much more worthwhile and exciting.
