6 out of 10

"My name is Kyle MacDonald. Until recently I was 'between jobs', sick of sponging off others, and on the verge of being dumped by my girlfriend I had to do something to get myself out of that rut.
It was then I remembered a childhood game I used to play, Bigger and Better, a way of trading old stuff to get bigger and better new stuff. And then I saw it, a red paperclip holding the pages of my CV together, ready to go out into the world and help me find a job. I decided that I'd start with that. And I promised to visit whoever would trade with me, wherever they were, swapping each time for something bigger and better until maybe - just maybe - I got a house!"

There was an article in the paper last night about how they'd cleared the prostitutes and drug dealers out of the Old Library Wood and installed a free bookcase, whichstruck me as terribly English and reminded me of how, when I was a little boy, my mother used to say to me "You can have ice cream or a chocolate but you can't have both".

Thanks for the free book. I shall read and release.
