Why do they do it?

Why do bookshops insist on putting stickers on the covers of books? I then feel the need to carefully remove the offending item. To make matters when I have succeeded, without damaging the cover of the book, I discover that hidden underneath is an endorsement by the Daily Express, that I would rather not have been aware of. . . .

Words for lockdown (courtesy of Susie Dent)

respair = the opposite of despair

resipiscence = return to a better state of mind

confelicity = the unselfish joy in someone else’s pleasure – the opposite of schadenfreude, I guess . . .

The last of course is the hardest in most people’s eyes, as Gore Vidal admitted ‘Every time a friend succeeds, I die a little.’

Mind you, he also said ‘I never miss an opportunity to have sex or go on television.’ I simply hope the two never coincided . . . . .
