    party a good friend of mine had given me a $20 gift card to buy some books at Barnes and Nobles. If you didn't know Barnes and Nobles is a bookstore that sells anything book related. A month later I visited Barnes and Nobles to buy some books. The door opened and the aroma of coffee filled the air. I walked past the aisles looking for a book that caught my eye. I eyed the “Artist’s Guide of Drawing Everything” but along with the book was a tag that read $45. My thoughts faded away. I then looked…
