Usually, I read at my desk. To my right will be a pile of books I plan to read in the near future, to my left a small stack of post-it sized pieces of paper. Sometimes, for fun, I will write down a quote from the book I’m currently reading on one of those pieces of paper and hide it somewhere between the pages of a book on my to-read pile. Then, I will forget about it, until I encounter it again, weeks, months, years later.
