Whenever I get a day off, I like to pick up a book that has nothing to do with my work or my classes and sit and read. Being in graduate school, doesn’t give me a lot of time to read strictly for pleasure, I do have the occasional free afternoon or Sunday. I found a Borders book store, right around the corner from me, and it has the most amazing air conditioning. They have booths where you can curl up and read all day long. It is more like a giant bookstore, but you can buy the books and keep them forever if you like them. Last week, it was a really hot day, and I didn’t want to take my book to the beach or even sit out on my patio. I grabbed my book and I headed to Borders. The air conditioning felt so great when I walked in. I started to peruse the racks for a new book, and I came across a real drama that looked interesting. I found a comfortable chair in the back of the Borders and it was situated right under an AC air vent. I sat there and I began to read. I must have dozed off for a while, and I woke up to see the people walking outside the store. They looked harried and sweaty, and I wondered if they were heading in here to enjoy the AC, as I was. I was so comfortable, that I didn’t really care. I leaned back in my chair, and I finished the new book.
