Was at the airport yesterday sitting through a three-hour delay. I desperately needed a book, so I went to the airport gift shop.
Desperate though I was, there was not one book I could buy. They were all dumb crime novels or romance novels or mystery novels.
I noticed something else about all their dumb books. All the titles had bumpy letters, the kind you can feel with your fingers.
That is how I know a book is dumb. If I can feel the title with my fingers.
If you’re not blind and reading Braille, you should not be able to feel the title of your book.
I went back to my seat, bookless.
And noticed everyone around me reading books.
That all had bumpy letters.
