What You Should Not Put Under The Christmas Tree
December 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
So, there are christmas sales here in Poland. And special christmas premieres – products aimed to be launched during a perfect period, when hype rises along with demand for items that are not bought very often. Like books.
And in one of the biggest bookstores in Warsaw, Poland, there is a special stand with the latest novel by J.K. Rowling – The Casual Vacancy. The sign suggests it’s “the best present”.
If you were going to read this book, I assure you it’s worth it. But don’t buy it to anyone for Christmas. Why, you’d ask.
Well, some people see nothing wrong in buying someone a book on eugenics as a present. Even I bought one for my girlfiend! But many people wouldn’t find it suitable to put under the christmas tree a book about:
- rape again,
- domestic violence (tough one),
- and so on.
This book really is for adults only. And it doesn’t go well with christmas atmosphere.
