Have you heard about the new Amazon physical bookstore in Seattle?  Read about it and see photos here:

Now, see if you can answer my riddle.

Riddle:  What do veterans and books in the new physical Amazon bookstore have in common?

Answer:  They both face forward and march!

How can books march?  You’ll figure it out.  Happy Veterans Day!

Did I write this riddle?  Yes, I did.  And yes, all the books at the new Amazon physical bookstore in Seattle face out.  Photos are available at the link above.  Because the Amazon store is across the country from where I live, I chose to include photos of books on display at a local public library.

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Read, write, or share a riddle.  I look forward to your comments.  Please remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!
