Left my old paperback of Hunter Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ‘72″ in an airplane seatback pocket on the way to Salt Lake City last week.
It was one of a few go-to books I’d pick up when I didn’t know what to grab. I’d open to any page and take off. No idea how much of it I read.
There was a gross yellow on the fore edge from years of flipping and securing the pages with my apparently disgusting thumbs. Don’t know how many trips I took it on.
I ordered a new paperback AND a new E copy today.
Maybe whoever gets hold of it now will dig it.
