@23/Fnarf, twice this has happened - I'm sitting alone in a restaurant lounge, phone at nearby table rings, guy answers phone and raises his "just a minute" finger to his friends and walks away from the table to take the call . . . standing directly next to me. WTF, politely rude guy?

Paul, serious question here - am I the only reader who hates dust jackets? I'd rather carry a book naked so I throw them out. I find them impossible to keep pristine - the edges always get torn and bent. When I borrow a hardcover, I set the dust jacket aside and put it back on when I return the book. Down with dust jackets!
