John Marsden Writing Topic #71
‘Bookshops sell more books on Tuesdays than other days.’ Assuming this is true, how many reasons can you think of to explain it?
-People are more open to reading due to getting over ‘Monday-itis’.
-People have spent their weekend reading a good book and want to buy another one for the following weekend.
-There may be companies who pay the bookshop’s regular customers on a Monday or Tuesday and therefore the regular customers have the money to go on a book shopping spree.
