Why I should never buy books to read on a plane trip

My copy of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War from was on my doorstep when I got home at around 1:30. It was read by 5:00—and that included interruptions to eat lunch and to make arrangements for Yet Another Phone Interview.

This compulsive behavior on my part creates two immediate problems for me: I now need to find another book to read on the plane Monday, and I will probably have to pay retail for it.

Library? If you haven’t already read it, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Suzanna Clarke will keep you busy for at least a few days.


I’m always paranoid I’ll lose a library book if I go on a trip.

Weird phobia, I know…
