From Booking through Thursday:
What’s the most desperate thing you’ve read because it was the only available reading material?
If it was longer than a cereal box or an advertisement, did it turn out to be worth your while?
I was once stuck in the car repair shop waiting room without a book, and was forced to read Sports Illustrated, and some car repair shop management magazines. Maybe a "Money" or "Fortune" magazine, but that would not be as desperate. I learned a lot about the benefits of different kinds of tires, batteries, etc. from the magazines and the brochures around. I think I read the certificates on the wall, too. Needless to say, I keep a book in my car at all times now, because I don't want to be that desperate again!
