1. A couple found an unused gift certificate in their wedding album, as they got ready for their 50th wedding anniversary. The store agreed to honor it. (News video did not autoplay for me, the transcript is limited so might be worth saving for when you have headphones.)
2. I tend to focus on the gingko fruit which is stinky, but the leaves are a gorgeous yellow in fall, and I hadn't noticed they drop at once until this story. Those gingkos are showoffs.
3. Marketplace, with the help of librarian Jessamyn West took a look at the Macmillan decision and what it means for readers.
