June is upon us. How are we halfway through the year already? We suppose that time does indeed fly when you are engrossed in a good book. We are also quietly suspicious (quietly because paranoia & loud rantings about time dilation and temporal shifts may not be good for one’s career) about the way time flows in a bookstore. Does the time outside tick on normally? This is just a pondering between old friends, so let’s keep this under our hats for now. We may have to consult the good folks in Nightvale when the men in suits aren’t looking.
Join us in the bookstore this June as we ponder the above and many other topics covered in our assigned reading below. Pop quiz to follow…
