Booking Through Thursday - 02/02/12
Have you ever read a random book left in a waiting room or on a park bench, etc., and did you like it?

In college, I used to find myself at the local laundromat weekly. I have always considered laundry time relaxing and restful.  So, though I usually had classwork to focus on, I more often found myself looking to avoid it and zone out.

Many laundromats have TVs and, of course, you can always check out the other patrons (what color underwear does he wear?!?!). But I always loved it when folks left their used magazines and books on the window ledge. More than once I picked up a book and delved into it. Most of the time the books were not at all of my interest or taste, but given that I was looking for something brainless and offering little stress I usually enjoyed these books very much.
