BOOK, LINE, AND SINKER
Did I mention my little road trip to Daytona Beach, Disney World, and Savannah? Well, it’s happening right now! I left last Thursday and drove from NJ to FL in one day. Treated my younger cousin (freshie at a college in Daytona) to a whirlwind Disney weekend.
Tonight finds me in one if my favorite American cities: Savannah, GA. ‘The Book’, as it’s locally known, gave me my first introduction . My mom and I made our first trip down in 2001 and this marks my fourth trip.
‘Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil’ may have inspired my inital visit, but this unique and charming city keeps drawing me back.
Has a book (or movie) ever inspired you to travel?
P.S. Hyatt hotel, are you serious with your $10 wi-fi charge? Will you charge for AIR next?
P.P.S. I totally circumvented the ludicrous fee by typing this post on my iPhone…so suck an egg, Hyatt!
Open Letter to the creator of PVC Book Covers/Dust Jackets:
I’m writing on behalf of my injured fingers, three of which sustained grave wounds this weekend as I attempted to read a book with one of those new-fangled plastic-paper covers. Don’t feign ignorance, you know what I’m talking about! PVC plastic has no business masquerading as paper, especially when it comes to covers of paperback books. I thought PVC had something to do with pipes!
I understand that libraries are just trying to preserve their books, but I ask you, at what cost?! Would they prefer a blood-stained copy of Julie and Julia to a slightly creased copy? I almost took a scissor to my book to round the edges of doom but was afraid a heavy fine would be levied against me.
I have a $50 deductible at the ER and don’t relish the doctor telling me I need three stitches* in my finger all because of a book. Isn’t reading supposed to be a safe and relatively inexpensive hobby?
Best (though bloody) wishes,
Book, Line, and Sinker
*A bit of hyperbole is being employed here. I didn’t really need stitches but they added a bit of flair to my story! Sorry for any confusion.
