This year I received an award given out to the students with the highest grade average of the past year. I was honored to receive the award, of course, but I was also delighted about the book I got (where they put the certificate as the first page). In an incredible coincidence the book awarded — Richard Dawkin’s “The Selfish Gene” — was exactly the book I was currently reading on my e-book reader. Although I was halfway through the book at the time, it was a joy to have the rare experience of reading a book in paper format. A full review of the book will be coming soon.
