"Well I own a bookstore. One must be into reading and books and that sort of thing to own one," Trendal said a bit distractedly. Maybe that was saying things a bit backwards. He had been into reading and books and that was why he decided he wanted to own the bookstore. But he'd become distracted because he thought he'd seen a cow but it had turned out to be a truck rumbling by one of the nearby streets.
Shaking himself, he looked back over at his guide. "I've always enjoyed reading though. It seems rather wonderful to be able to be a part of another person's imagination for a bit, and to immerse in another world for a short while."
Panem was rather lacking in spectacular adventure. Other than cows and the hunger games that was.
