I don’t care if the book is tattered. I don’t care if the pages have sprung from its spine. All I care about is it’s a book and I can read it.

“Get him!” Little Ja said to her cousins, and there was a mad dash toward the poor young man who said he’d buy carrot juice the next time he’d pass by, but he didn’t.
This was just one of the crazy things I did when I was a kid. My cousins and I sold carrot juice right outside our house, and we were all bent to earn not just a little, but a lot.
My mother always dreamed that I’d become a businesswoman, so early in life she encouraged me to sell stuff. If you’ve read Ja’s Childhood Businesses, you’d know that I had tons of businesses when I was just a kid. I would often sell something depending on what was trendy. When that trend ended, I’d abandon selling that and start selling the new trendy thing. Eventually I stopped because, even if I was earning, it was hard to run a business while I was studying.
Now I wish I had a book-selling business. It will be an online second hand bookstore called The REaD Hunter, and it will sell the most awesome books on the planet.
