Also Seen at the Bookstore Last Night

by Joey deVilla on October 17, 2010

In addition to Screw Calm and Get Angry, I also saw this at the Book City in Bloor West Village:

Sign on table of books: "It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it"

Nice sentiment, but it scans better when the lines are broken up like this:

It is what you read
when you don’t have to
that determines
what you will be
when you can’t help it
