Can't put it down

While waiting for the bus this morning, I read a library copy of book I just cannot seem to put down nor seem to read very quickly. It is one of those kinds of books so densely written I can only read about four pages before I pause, ponder and meditate before reading the next few pages. This morning, the bus caught me in a meditating moment. It stopped. The doors opened and I looked at the driver a bit surprised and disgusted that I was being interrupted. He returned a look of indifference as if to say, "If you don't get yo' ass on this bus in five seconds, I'm leaving." I stuffed the book into my messenger bag as I climbed onto the bus. Four more pages were read before I got to work. Somehow I know this book is going to distract me all day.

    Which book are you reading?

    I've encountered a few of those, and they're a delight. Make yo brain work harder, too.
