The New Book on the Shelf

The new book was placed on the bookcase between Lady Chatterly’s Lover and The Kama Sutra.

Since one can endure only so much of anything,‭ ‬the stunned little paperback crept sheepishly away from those two naughty tomes and jumped to the shelf below.

There,‭ ‬it nestled comfortably between Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey.

Within minutes,‭ ‬the people on the cover began ducking,‭ ‬shaking their fists as arrows and bullets whizzed past their heads,‭ ‬dangerously close.

The book catapulted to the shelf underneath,‭ ‬sighing with fatigue.‭ ‬It squeezed between Dante’s Inferno and Milton’s Paradise Lost.

And then all hell broke loose.
