Life's Little Defeats

The branch of the Cambridge public library closest to our apartment is closing, so I went on an ordering spree on the library catalogue website requesting books from other branches (unlike the Harvard library system, the local public library system will send over books from other libraries to your home library, and I hate carrying bags of books all the way from another branch).

I requested a copy of Cloud Atlas, the hot new fantasy novel by David Mitchell that's a favorite for the Booker Prize and the Nebula.

And when I got home to spread my hoard out for Geoffrey to see, what did I notice?

This. I don't know if it was my mistake or the library's, but: phooey.
