It is too perfect. It is light, compact, has decent-sized print, and presumably, even if the story is not great, it would hold my attention on a long plane trip.
That is why I have never read it. I am saving it up for the worst plane trip of my life. As long as I have never read this book, I feel protected against the prospect of that plane trip.
I’ve brought the book on this trip, but I’m not sure I’ll crack the first page. Its liquidity premium is simply too high.
