Plus, having a Master's degree in English Literature kinda explains it, too. Just don't tell my professors and graduate director that my favorite books are British chic lit. (Oh, Sophie Kinsella, let's be BFFs!) Somehow I doubt they'll think that's intellectually stimulating enough.
So when I got today's mission from Affiliated Agent J in Bonney Lake in Washington State, my heart did a little swooning. He really had the right idea! Hooray for books!

Let's hear about Affiliated Agent J's first mission:
So today I completed my first mission while I was up in Bellevue, WA. I love to read and often stop by Barnes & Nobles Bookseller to browse the aisles. I decided this would be a great opportunity to share my passion with others.
So before I left I purchased 5 x $5 gift cards. I set the first one up with a note from myself and the SAL business card.
I then went to the Bellevue Square mall and drove through the parking garage until I saw a car with a child's sippy cup left on the roof. A perfect target for a RAK.
I pulled in beside the car and looked around waiting until there were no people nearby. I have to admit I was kind of nervous placing this first gift. I jumped out of my car, stuck the package under the the windshield wiper, snapped a pic on my iPhone, and jumped back in my car. As I drove away I noticed my heart was racing and a smile was on my face. "What would be the recipient's reaction when they found the gift on their windshield?" was just one of the thought racing through my mind.
After running some errands I went back to Barnes & Nobles to complete another RAK mission.
This time I went into the store and decided to drop a package between some books on a shelf. This worked out wonderfully.
Yes, Affiliated Agent J, it did. It most certainly did. *high five*
