Bedside Table 25 April, 2009 Posted in: Reading etc.The difficulty is that I may not have time to read all of these before I die. And the library just called to say that the two books I reserved have come in. Sigh.
Other people’s reading selections are often fascinating. I misread the fourth one down on the right, though, as “Sexual Handbook”, which I thought was admirably honest of you until, on closer inspection, I realised it was actually “Sexual Paradox”!
I once saw a sign in a tube station which actually said “For more information see the dot matrix on platform 4”, but which I misread as “see the dominatrix on platform 4” – which would probably be a very effective approach to public information.
Clearly all these instances say more about the state of my mind than my eyesight.
Gosh, you need a bigger bedside table!
I find myself frantically finishing library books before they have to go back, and neglecting the ones I’ve bought and really want to read.
