The Thicker the Better
I make my book choices based on thickness…okay, okay, not all the time. If I did, I would have missed out on some great thin books like The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I definitely have chosen by thickness though because I love to immerse myself in a good book for a really really long time.
I was reading the dictionary. I thought it was a poem about everything. -Steven Wright
I used to read the dictionary when I was a kid. It was a wonderfully thick book. I read the encyclopedia too but that's another story. I used to make up these word tree games and I brought them in for my teacher to teach to the class. (Yes, I was one of those kids.) I never understood why she didn't use them so one day I made copies for each of my classmates. I told my classmates to bring the papers back in when they were finished so I could correct them. What do you think happened?
