Prince Harry’s memoir has become Europe’s most discarded book this holiday season. Hotels have apparently been inundated with copies left behind by people on holiday. There are so many copies left strewn around by guests that even local libraries aren’t keen to take them.
The Daily Mirror reports the book, which initially seemed like a bestseller, has now become something that often finds itself in the lost items bin.
On the Beach hotel booking company says hotels and resorts in Italy, Turkey, Greece and Spain are finding copies in their lost and found section all too often.
In an interview with Express, On the Beach’s chief customer officer, Zoe Harris, said, “We thought it was quite funny at first, but over the past few months, several other hotels have been sending books back, now we have bookcases full of them. Maybe we should all take a leaf out of Harry’s book and spare ourselves the bother in the first place!”
She also said that she had told hotels to stop sending copies to them because they didn’t know what to do with all the extra books. They are planning to give them away on their social media pages.
Employees of On the Beach also made a video sharing how the book has irritated them.
One employee says in the video, “Everyday there it was. The face – it just haunts me in my sleep.”
Another caption said, “Please STOP leaving this book on holiday… looking for a beach read? We have some Spare.”
Spare chronicles Prince Harry’s life with anecdotes about his childhood and relationships with his parents, Prince Diana and Prince William. The book came out in January 2023 and was much anticipated then. It sold 1.4 million copies and topped the Amazon book list. But that didn’t last long, and its sales continued to plummet amidst bad press about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
