NEW YORK, NY - A middle aged woman was found Thursday night on 42nd Avenue, buried and broken, underneath the weight of the Advanced Reader's Copies (ARCs) she gathered from her day at this year's Book Expo America. "I told her not to overdo it," her husband said to reporters as he came into Manhattan from their Staten Island home to gather the books, "This is ridiculous. She wants me to bring the books to the hospital!"[cont...]It could go on from there. There could be added details about how my Intracranial Hypertension decided to attack with a whopping headache on Tuesday, how my Colitis gave me daily warnings about not leaving home, and how I had to take breaks more than the average person just to get through each day. However, the freak accident didn't occur, with all the breaks, and perhaps without as much flourish as a 100% healthy person: I made it.
And now that I am home, I have a lot to read. Don't believe me? Let me show you...
