The email asked whether or not Kara was “doing fine” based on the book’s titles.

The email read: “Hi Kara, your order is now ready for pickup! We are open weekdays from 7am to 7pm and weekends from 8am to 7am. Thank you for supporting Porter Square Books.’

And while the beginning of the email seemed normal, the rest was anything but normal.

“I’d say enjoy reading, but these titles suggest otherwise… I hope you’re doing well! Best, Morgan.

‘PS The Fleabag Scriptures is my most prized possession, I hope you enjoy it!’

Kara loved Morgan’s email and thought it was a nice touch, even saying, “Hot girls support their local bookstores.”

In an interview with the Boston Globe, Morgan said, “It was one of the assignments that I was keen to do.

“I saw the two books together and thought I’d just write a little note to make sure that person is okay.

“Or just a little sincere, little aside that someone is thinking of her and that I hope she’s okay.”

Kara shared the email with the caption, “Ordered Jeanette McCurdy’s new memoir and The Fleabag Scriptures and received a wellness check from my local bookstore.”

Her tweet received over 101,000 likes and 3,423 retweets.

Morgan admitted she didn’t “expect” her work email to go viral, adding, “It was really sweet and really revealing how many people kind of connected to that tweet.

“And it was also really exciting to see all these people supporting independent bookstores.”

“In the period when you order things online, especially when you order a book from Amazon, you will never receive a personalized message, nor would you receive a message with someone verifying you,” Kara told the Boston Globe.
