Quote of the day

Maud Newton discusses the merits of paperback fiction vs. hardcover:

Paperbacks are superior in every way — except on the subway, where if you drop a hardcover you can remove the dustjacket and not contaminate your hands with floor germs — unless you’re a collector.

I'll just point out that if you drop a paperback novel on a sticky subway floor, you can leave it there and go buy a new one without having to take out a bank loan.
