I’ve never been in a situation where I wasn’t allowed to have a book. I take books with me everywhere — in my pocket, on my phone. They are an integral part of my existence.
Today I have to report for jury duty.
In a situation where there is the potential for hurry-up-and wait, taking a book with me makes natural sense. Especially since I have so many I want to get through. I also can’t have my phone, so no digital books either. Does anyone know why I can’t have a book?
The phone thing I get. The book thing, not so much.
Also, have you ever been in a situation when you weren’t allowed to have a book with you? What did you do?
