Shakespyeare: Day 79 - Othello and Generosity

Tea, Complete Works, and Stack of Books
I spent the evening at the local cafe finishing Othello and playing a few covers for the open mic. A stranger passing my table glanced down at what I was reading. "A Shakespeare fan?" he asked. I told him about my year of the Bard. He smiled and said, "I'll be right back." 

He returned with a satchel and set it down in front of me. "I was just on my way to drop these at the library for donation. Take what you like." I opened the bag to find it stuffed full of pocket Shakespeare volumes. I took the obscure one's - Timon of Athens, Pericles of Tyre, Coriolanus, and such. How pleasant to meet new friends and find William lurking in unexpected places!
