Okay. That does it. Next hotel stay, I’m swapping out the [Holy] Bible for one of my own faves. Lolita. Or Bernhard’s The Lime Works. Or As I Lay Dying. Or The Complete Stories of Flannery O’Connor. Or a stack of Elmore Leonard novels.
In Lieu of Bibles.
Hotel Stocks Nightstands.
It is good, Joel and friends of the website. Fun, it is happening with eels, but it is thinking we are that more there is than eels. Although eels, we are confessing, they are interesting and that talk of eels is informative and fun.
But talk of the [Holy] Bible (and of hotel nightstands and the popular books of the day), that is good, too, and of interest to the people generally.
And so let there be both talk of eels and of the books the people find on the hotel nightstands.
Let us not speak of eel and Gideons collusion.
Speak eel of no man, but speak all the good you know of everybody
