Almost by accident, i discovered that a website from a local company here offered mystery packs of books where you get 10 or 20 books for a set price (200 or 300 NOK) and they’re all picked at random. Considering the fact that the lowest price for just ONE is around 60 NOK, getting 10 at random is a pretty good deal! I decided to go for it and I was so excited when my package arrived! I quickly tore it open and found these inside.
