one's books, oneself?


This morning, a selection of books had been left on the trash can by the 38 bus stop. The stack began with an emphasis on DIY practicality--Single in a Married World and Dr. Phil's Love Smart: Find the One You Love, Fix the One You've Got--but rose optimistically. The One was followed by Living Serendipitously; on top was Expect a Miracle. The collection was pleasing to come upon because of its cohesiveness, however cliche--only Dialogue ("How to get your characters talking to each other in a way that vividly reveals who they are, what they're doing, and what's coming next in your story") and Grey's Anatomy (the book, not the TV show) were outliers. Still! I enjoyed taking photos of them until the 38 came, though the suited man waiting in the bus shelter gave me strange looks.
