Unputdownable

Supriya’s book wasn’t available in the Horror section.

She pulled another instead, but knocked out a third book in the process.

“Shit.” She replaced the book and sat.

Funny. It was not the one she pulled – but the one that fell.

She exchanged and sat. Same book again.

"Read me," the book said, whispering gently.
