Jo asked if I'd read the Jimmy Buffett book "about turning fifty."
"A Pirate Looks at Fifty?" I replied. "I've read one of his others, but not that one."
"I'm finished with it. Do you want it?"
She stepped into her camper and came out with a hardback. Wow. A hardback. About an inch and a quarter thick. About 450 pages. Maps inside the covers. Serious bookness. Especially after reading e-books the past couple of years. I hefted it. Considered it.
"Until I get around to reading it, I guess I could use it to prop up something."
