So, sometimes we mere humans don’t finish a book in one sitting because we might have to go to work, take a shower, or maybe eat something. Neither you nor I want to have to remember what page we’re on, because that’s hard. This is a problem that has plagued the human species for millions of years.
Here at PolySkeptic R&D, we have been working on a new technology to make your book-reading life easier. We call it a page-you-left-off-reading-marking-device. Marketing still needs to come up with a better name, but for now I’m calling them ‘page-thingies,’ for short.
In any case, they look like this:
Linky McLincolnstein (he was Abe’s Jewish cousin, I think)
Let me know if you think of a better name for these things, and let me know what you’re reading. I’m currently reading Middlemarch, by George Eliot. I have not finished it yet because I keep having to start from the beginning, since I forget where I left off. But no more! Finally, I can read past page 3 (or so)!
