What do people who don't read do in waiting rooms?
I asked this question again as we waited in the hospital ER last Friday. What do people do who don't read?
This weekend I finished The Dramatist and Running Blind.
Molly finished To the Power of Three and started Water for Elephants.
Poor Jenny was stuck without a book on Friday so she bought something from the woefully inadequate selection in Duke Hospital's gift shop. She said there were plenty of religious books and inspirational tracts (which I find disconcerting in an institution dedicated to science), but they inspired Jenny to ask where the hell the fiction was.
They found a few books, Jenny bought one but it sucked.
So what do people who don't read do in waiting rooms? How do they pass the time? I can't imagine.
Ever been stuck somewhere with nothing to read? That, my inspirational friends, is my idea of hell.
