They were funny because they kept arguing about who was best – J.D. Robb or Nora Roberts. Or Karin Slaughter. Or someone else…They couldn’t remember.
They used the hand sanitizer generously and did not agree with the trucks going past at such speed (too loud). They promised to lend each other their books. One lady thought the other would lose the book first. The accused lady looked fierce. She paid for her book, looking organised.
