Synchronicity: The Book came Home

A synchronicity is a fancy term for a coincidence that cannot be explained. One of those happened to me a few years. One Christmas, I gave my best friend a book. I wrote a greeting to her on the inside of the book. One time, she said the book disappeared. She was looking for it and could not find it anywhere. I was poking around a thrift store one day. I looked at books and saw that they had a copy of the same book I gave her. I opened up the book and found the inscription, bought the book and gave it back to her. She insists that she never gave it away and did not know how it got there.

@akalinus Definitely that is a coincidence-and a very pleasant one.I think while your friend was sorting the books to keep and those to donate to the thrift shop it was inadvertently placed on the wrong pile.Happens all the time.This has happened to me and I have given away some which I had wanted to keep..Anyway,what a nice surprise.

I think it was an accident if she did. It is very strange that I would find that particular one out of all the books in all the shops. You see a lot of the same books in these shops. I thought it was just another copy until I saw my note in there.
