Reading Callus

March 16, 2009 at 5:33 pm | Posted in Book Blather | 3 Comments

When I first noticed it, I couldn’t figure out where it came from.  There is a callus between the first and second fingers on my left hand, about the size of a pencil eraser.  There’s nothing corresponding to it on the other side.

“That’s weird,” I thought.  “I wonder where…”  I thought about it for about a week.  Finally I realized that the book I was reading was rubbing on it.

So now we know what happens after a person reads 500 books in 433 days.  Maybe I should stick to audio for a while.
