25 Funny Tweets From After Elon Musk Bought Twitter

Today we present a very special edition of the funniest tweets of the week. Elon Musk bought Twitter, and finally made comedy legal. Sadly, that meant getting roasted by every person who uses the app, including via parody accounts. Thankfully, we’ve saved a few of the truly great posts for posterity. Hopefully, you enjoy them. Yes, we all love books here. In fact, you should probably be reading one instead of this website, but come on. You’re on the toilet or the subway right now. That’s no time for mind-expanding fiction.

Story Of My Life Makes Every Relatable Moment In Life A Book Title (25 Pics)

The Story Of My Fucking Life Instagram page has a lot to say. Thankfully, the creators say it in a funny way. Book covers that “say it all” are kind of my thing, and this page does it better than anyone else in my humble opinion. Am I saying that simply because I wrote a few of these? Yes. Yes, I am. That fact, however, shouldn’t stop you from reading the best posts from this Instagram account. Nearly every joke will have you saying “I could have written the book on that subject!” After you finish reading these, consider buying...

Why Is Everyone On Tumblr Reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula Right Now?

Why is everyone reading Bram Stoker’s 1897 horror novel Dracula right now? In short, everyone is reading Dracula because the novel rules. Whether you’re looking for humorous observations about Dracula or not, open up the blogging site Tumblr, and you’re bound to see several entries without even following the “Dracula Daily” hashtag. Hundreds of thousands of people have been writing their thoughts on specific diary entries and letters in the epistolary novel. If you ever wanted to read jokes, memes, and deep thoughts about a book that came out 125 years ago as if it were being released as a...

Readers Hilariously Ruin Book Titles By Adding A Single Word (21 Tweets)

I miss when Twitter was dumber. Remember? We were all there to crack jokes and start hashtag wars and the most political statement we made was “Triscuits are overrated.” But now, it’s turned boring and scary at the same time. Luckily, there are still funny people starting trends like “#AddAWordRuinABook.” The results may ruin your favorite book titles forever. Frankly, readers have too much time on their hands. That’s why they fill a lot of it with reading. But, that also means they have a lot of thoughts running through their brains. Thoughts, for better or worse, that they pour...

Internet Roasts Guy Who Shared Bro-ey List Of “20 Books To Read In Your 20s”

We could all stand to read more and post on Twitter less. Especially now, as one of the biggest billionaire dorks is set to buy the whole site and turn it into a space for crypto bros and Men’s Rights Activists to have a free-for-all. I digress. The point is: a guy shared a list of “20 books you should read in your 2os,” and people who read a lot were dumbfounded and displeased. Frankly, the answer is you should read whatever you want (unless it causes you to become a Men’s Rights Activist or crypto bro). But why were...

I recently revisited Patton Oswalt’s first album, and thought “wow, nothing is going to top the sentence: ‘Buddha has a ghost-penis that lives in your cereal.'” Nevertheless, every day a new and extremely weird, 100% original sentence is written that is stranger than that and yet somehow logical in context. Thankfully, there’s a whole subreddit devoted to “Brand New Sentences.” If you’ve ever heard a smart person speak who “did the math” or thought some small piece of logic through to its obvious conclusion, chances are you’ve heard something truly bizarre but true come out of their mouth.

People Are Sharing Their “Cancellable” Opinions About Books (31 Tweets)

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that whenever a subject is broached on Twitter, there is someone looking to get canceled for their terrible take. Frankly, it’s what the site is for now. If you’re a big reader, chances are you’ve formed an opinion about books that not all of your friends agree with. That is if you have any friends left. I don’t. I lost them all while posting my cancellable opinion on Ben & Jerry’s (there’s too much going on in those pints to enjoy the flavor! Tone it down, I say.) This entire website is devoted to...

What If History Textbooks Used Hilariously “Wrong” Photos? (33 Pics)

Learning about history can be fun, but it’s funnier if the wrong photos are attached. Think of your favorite Ken Burns documentary. Now, substitute the real Civil War images with images from Captain America: Civil War. Well, that’s corny. Luckily, the funny people who contribute to Reddit’s r/fakehistoryporn are much darker than I am. If I had a textbook with these photos attached to real-world events, I might have gotten a higher score on my AP tests in high school. Sadly, I didn’t care about history books/biographies until this year, thus fulfilling the prophecy that all middle-aged dudes who read...

People Roast Ashley Tisdale For Using 400 Random Books As Decor

Why buy books if you can’t show them off on your shelves? If you’re simply trying to read more, you might as well go to the library and then return whatever you read as soon as you finish it. Frankly, reading books without telling people you read books is a fool’s errand. You have to flaunt it. Unfortunately, not all curated shelves are alike, as actress and singer Ashley Tisdale discovered after her interview with Architectural Digest. While giving a tour of the Los Angeles home she designed herself, she revealed that she didn’t have enough books to fill the...

Reporter Who Mocked People For Bringing Books To Bars Gets Schooled By Readers On Twitter

It’s been a rough week for Jeremy Schneider. First, he posted a bad take on Twitter and got ratio’d by a bunch of book nerds. Secondly, he lives in New Jersey. I wouldn’t wish either on my worst enemy. He posted his opinion on people who bring books to read in bars. His take? People don’t like them. Here is his original tweet: A pretty strong opinion. Painting with a broad brush stroke too, assuming everyone agrees with him. Personally, I love to see someone reading in a bar. It means the bar is quiet and no one is going to...

If you can conjure a line from a book in your head, and instantly give yourself goosebumps, this may not be the post for you. However, if you love adding the “f-word” to famous lines in literature to make them funnier, welcome. I’m not saying it’s true of all books everywhere, but sometimes a book drags. Especially old ones. That’s why heroes like Twitter user @Turning_Pages7 come to us in our time of need and ask all of Twitter to share what prose could be spiced up with a fuck or two.

A person (one after my own heart) is going around giving funny subtitles to books, and the results are making me actually want to read these old tomes. An Instagram account named Snide Octopus is out there doing the Lord’s work by making old titles sound slightly more enticing with hilariously weird subtitles. We’re all about retitling here. Authors are notoriously bad at it. Usually, the rule of thumb is “less is more” but in this instance more is more. Sometimes, a book needs that extra little nudge for a reader to show interest.

Well, that’s not true, but we’re here today to imagine what it’d be like. Here is an original funny list by Better Book Titles contributors exploring the subject!

Who Says Learning Can’t Be Funny? (28 Textbook Jokes)

Education is a tough racket. For one, the government comes around every once in a while and tells you how and what to teach. Then, they take money away from libraries. Also, the jokes in textbooks, by and large, are not funny. On top of all that, kids are pretty distractable and don’t love reading per se. Fortunately, there are stellar writers putting together textbooks as we speak. Thankfully, the good people of Reddit who actually do their homework caught all the funny textbook jokes the world has to offer. Honestly, I miss school. Mostly, I miss when reading was...

I call it “Positive Pranks.” I only call when I have something nice to say. Who does that? Customer service is for angry complaints about finding a shrimp tail in your Cinnamon Toast Crunch (LOL, remember that? I hated it). However, when I look at a bottle of shampoo, it doesn’t say “call this number to yell at a stranger.” No, it says call this number with “questions and comments.” Well, I love to put in...

Funny Book Recommendations From a Disgruntled Bookseller

Below is another original humor piece from Better Book Titles. Selling books is hard work. Mostly, because of the type of customers you encounter. How many times can another human being treat you like Google, walking in saying “Franzen?” before you snap? The answer is about 600 times. After that, you stop caring. That is the disgruntled bookseller’s original story. It’s not pretty. We graduate from a liberal arts college with big dreams of writing our own novel or screenplay, and – oop! – you’re peddling other people’s work. Honestly, I don’t support rudeness. But, below you’ll find honest recommendations...

27 Booksellers And Librarians Who Hilariously Trolled Their Patrons

If you’ve ever worked in a bookstore or library, chances are, you were bored. Sadly, there’s tons of work that can be done on a rainy day when no customers enter the store. However, does that mean you’re actually going to do that work? No. You’re going to make a funny sign or shelve presidential autobiographies in the fiction section as a joke. Frankly, bookstores and libraries don’t pay enough for employees not to waste a ton of time at work. Sure, we care about any bookish institution, and our job is to get people excited about reading.

Librarian Creates Viral Twitter Thread By Sharing Every Important Thing She Knows About Libraries

We’ve talked a lot about libraries and librarians here. Honestly, I wish I were writing this article from a library right now. Sure, the article would take me 6 hours to finish because I’d be wandering the stacks, but that’s the joy of free books. They’re a constant distraction, but, somehow a healthy one? I don’t know. I’m not a doctor. I’m also not a librarian, so when a woman with the handle @grumpwitch shared her thoughts on what people don’t know about our beloved book sanctuaries, I found it eye-opening. So too did the rest of Twitter. The thoughts...

5 Funny Fairy Tale Parodies

A few years back, I did a whole show about Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Among other things, I discovered how truly bizarre the original stories (as the Grimm Brothers compiled them) are. Below are a few fake ones I wrote myself. If I can impart any knowledge about what I learned in my research on fairy tales, it’s this: they have no point. Unlike a fable or a parable, there is no moral lesson, necessarily. Sometimes, a gnome is just a gnome, you gnome what I mean? I’m sorry. Please keep reading. Please enjoy these new terrible fairy tales: 1. The...

Readers Answer The Big Question: “What Movie Is Better Than The Book?”

As my friend Soul Khan once said: “books…they’re like movies you can take into the bathroom.” Verifiably, books are often better than their cinematic adaptations. But now, thanks to iPads and flat-screen TVs that can fit in your shower, you literally can take a movie into the bathroom with you. The dream is realized, and books need to do something to keep up with the changing world. Until then, let’s see what movies readers believe are actually better than their source text. One person on Reddit wanted to know: “What movie was better than the book and why?” Basically, the...

Frankly, Children’s Literature alone is enough to make me pump the brakes on making a new one and sending it out into the world. They all seem like tiny sociopaths who like I Want My Hat Back or the part in James And The Giant Peach when the eponymous peach kills the aunts. Nevertheless, there will come a day where I find myself reading Click Clack Moo for the 800th time, hoping the socialist overtones resonated with my child. Hopefully, they will. More likely, they’ll like the...

Wow, There’s A Sentence I’ve Never Read Before (30 Pics)

I recently revisited Patton Oswalt’s first album, and thought “wow, nothing is going to top the sentence: ‘Buddha has a ghost-penis that lives in your cereal.'” Nevertheless, every day a new and extremely weird, 100% original sentence is written that is stranger than that and yet somehow logical in context. Thankfully, there’s a whole subreddit devoted to “Brand New Sentences.” If you’ve ever heard a smart person speak who “did the math” or thought some small piece of logic through to its obvious conclusion, chances are you’ve heard something truly bizarre but true come out of their mouth. That’s where...

27 Funny Original Memes And Jokes From Better Book Titles

We’ve had a fun year on Better Book Titles. Firstly, we got a whole new look for our website. Secondly, we stared at thousands of memes and plucked out any that were actually funny that had something to do with literature. Frankly, it was mind-numbing. But, it was all worth it if you enjoyed some of the posts. You enjoyed them, right? Please. Tell us you liked them! Anyway, we also flooded the internet with our own funny jokes and memes. Everything on our Instagram, Twitter, and homepage is an original funny title or a joke one of our contributors...

34 Hilariously Accurate Comics About Books

Reading is hard. Luckily, many stories can be told with pictures. That’s where funny comics and famous literature can meet. Who says picture books are just for kids? Cartoonists, historically, have very adult things on their minds, and they express these subjects in the form of comics. Sometimes, a cartoonist will even present famous pieces of literature (or their experiences reading them) in comic form. They’re easy to understand, funny, and make you feel something. It’s almost as if all of literature should follow suit. If you love books, you’ll probably love these comics about books. They’re short. They’re sweet....

Sometimes, you want to unwind with a few funny short jokes. Thankfully, that’s really all anyone is posting on Twitter these days (unless you count all the un-Democratic misinformation. There’s always room for that on social media.). Not everyone is built to write the next great American novel. Some people like to fit their genius ideas into a tweet under 240 characters.

Here Are The Best Books People Read In 2021

Greetings, friends! It’s that time of year again. The time when we put an arbitrary end date on what “came out this year” and what was “good” and “spiritually fulfilling” and “didn’t make us throw up” and then tell the world “look at us! We’re cultured and smart!” Here are the best books of 2021, Better Book Titles edition! Luckily, instead of strictly sticking to what the publishers want us to talk about (i.e. only books that came out from January 1st-December 31st, 2021), I asked the Better Book Titles community what their favorite reads were this year and collected...

The English language is one of the toughest to learn if you’re not a native speaker. Also, it’s hard to learn if you grew up speaking it, I guess. Luckily, we don’t all have to feel bad about using a word incorrectly or having poor grammar skills because the internet proves there’s always someone dumber than we are. Bless you, pretentious bloggers and Reddit forum lurkers for finding these perfect posts. These funny spelling and grammar mistakes from the subreddit known as “Bone Apple Tea” will make you laugh and cry. Let’s enjoy some good old “I can’t believe an...

If You Were An English Major In College, Have I Got The Memes For You (32 Pics)

Studying a language in college you technically already know can be daunting. Sure, you’ve read in English your whole life, spoken it fluently, and even written a paper or two about your native tongue. But what about all those other books you should have read? Better go to college so you know everything about all of English literature. Oops! That’s impossible. That’ll be $150,000. You’re welcome. Yes, studying English in college can feel lonely, pointless, and neverending. Sure, you will be instilled with a lifelong thirst for good storytelling and critical analysis of old books, but you’ll still be deeply...

Sometimes The Dedication Page Is the Best Part Of The Book (44 Pics)

A few years back, I wrote a humor book and dedicated it to my parents. A heartfelt, sincere thank you to them for their support. But then, I saw what other people wrote on their dedication pages, and I’m afraid I missed my shot at greatness. Even people in academia have written funnier dedication pages than I did. Can you believe it? The nerds have outdone me again. Thankfully, though, I have these hilarious inscriptions from authors who took the time to write something good. Move over, Dave Eggers! There’s a new group of clever people writing acknowledgments. (Dave Eggers...

Readers Are Sharing The Books That Changed Their Lives

What’s a book that absolutely changed your life? For me, it’s a toss-up between Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and L. Ron Hubbard’s Dianetics. Either one you read, you’re going to start looking at the world differently. I often struggle to find the next life-changing, mind-melting novel. Mostly, it’s not the fault of the writer. It’s because I can’t concentrate. Because I keep trying to read on the subway. The subway is whatever the opposite of a library is. There’s a guy masturbating, there are parents ignoring their screaming children, and a bunch of adults trying to look smarter...

Did You Know There’s A Prize Given Every Year For “Oddest Book Title”? Well, Here Are The Winners (24 Pics)

Earlier this week, I compiled a list of the truly hilarious and bizarre real books that exist in the world. Little did I know, however, the list of funny odd titles grows every year. Thankfully, the Diagram Prize, an official award handed out by the British publishing magazine The Bookseller, keeps track and commends the weirdest and wildest books that came out this year. While I love to read the silly and sad classic titles like “Microwaving For One,” a whole swath of new titles comes out every year. Frankly, I’m impressed. As the internet makes us more aware of...

Authors take note: the internet is a great resource for finding out what your readers love and hate. Certainly, I’m not suggesting you take all the advice. I have no idea how many books these people have read. Though, they are on Reddit all the time, so… they probably spend a lot of time alone with their books. Writing is a tough business. Anyone who actually finishes a piece of fiction and gets it published is deserving of respect and admiration. However, some people phone it in with easy plot devices and wooden characters. Some of the most celebrated books...

Look, I’ve never really enjoyed the Bed, Bath, & Beyond aesthetic. Honestly, the signs that say something like “Look at the time! It’s Wine O’Clock!” make me want to mix pills with whatever wine that homeowner is serving. And yet, every sign or shirt that says “go away, I’m reading” or the like instantly soothes me and makes me ask where the tea is because I’m about to sit on the couch and cuddle up with a book and a cat (I’m allergic, but still have the impulse).

A Brief History Of Authors Being Terrible At Titling Books (25 Pics)

Did you know that Harry Potter’s original name was Wally B. Wizard? Well, I looked it up and that’s not true at all. Frankly, you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet (or in a book, for that matter). However, I’ve dredged up some seriously funny original titles for books. The results are not pretty but they are hilarious. Naming a book is hard. Most authors probably overthink it. Honestly, a few of them with kids probably spent longer considering what they’d name a character in a novel than their own baby. To be fair, that baby ain’t gonna...

Reading on public transit is sacred and we should respect people who do it. Honestly, though, you’re still in public. People can see what you’re reading and judge accordingly. Also, it’s not a library. You can’t be upset when people are talking. Or staring. Frankly, people have decided that everywhere is their living room. Mostly, I notice it at the airport. I haven’t been to an airport, however, in 3 years. It’s hard to remember how much people treated every surface like a couch. Now, the public space that people treat like home is the subway. That’s where Subway Creatures...

Once upon a time, this website was known as the “funny bookish meme account” and people agreed it was rude, silly, and good enough to become a book in the real world. But, I got complacent. I forgot that there were other jokes to be made about literature. Namely, just how insane old pulp fiction covers were, and how a weird title on each could make you cackle. Enter Paperback Paradise, the funniest book-related Twitter and Instagram account on the internet. Frankly, I’m mad. At myself. Most of the posts on this website are things I wish I had thought...

I’m once again calling for a total and complete shutdown of male authors writing about women until we figure out what the hell is going on. I kid, of course, but the prose people found in real published books are making me rethink many things. Frankly, I’m scared of being added to this list one day. We’ve all been in a weird mood and written a few “she breasted boobily down the stairs” lines in our work. Better, then, to write sometime after you’ve had sex than try to store up the tension and use it as fuel to write....

In case you didn’t know already, I’m obsessed with book covers. Coincidentally, I run an entire website about fake titles. The truth, however, is always stranger than fiction. Frankly, I can’t believe these titles actually exist in the world. Whether it’s a purposefully enticing title like Chris Kraus’s novel I Love Dick or an educational read that’s as upfront as it is silly like Everyone Poops, real book covers are funnier than the fake ones I make here. Side note: when I worked in a bookstore, customers often walked in and treated booksellers like Google, saying the title of a book...

This Delightfully Unhinged Twitter Thread Features Orson Welles Roasting Pop Culture (29 Pics)

Candidly and unapologetically, I love Orson Welles. I understand people think that once you’re labeled a genius (by almost anyone), you’re instantly overrated. But The Third Man, Touch of Evil, the outtakes from the Paul Masson Wine commercials. Brilliant all, and he didn’t even direct two of those. Frankly, I’d watch Orson Welles read a phone book, as they say. A Twitter user by the name of @NoChorus wrote a series of deranged musings in Orson Welles’ voice about nearly every piece of pop culture the famed director never lived to see. From Slenderman to Seinfeld, these hilarious fake Orson...

Oh, So That’s What Happens When You Return A Library Book 110 Years Late

Recently, I found out what a library is. It’s like a bookstore, but you don’t pay for the books. Unless, of course, you keep said books longer than the library allows. Frankly, it’s a sweet deal. Until you forget to return a book for 110 years or so. This story of the extremely overdue library book comes to us from Idaho, famous for its thrilling literary history: Hemingway spent the worst years of his life in Ketchum before blowing his brains out. Also, Ezra Pound was born there, then decided to live outside the US for most of his life....

I’ve spent many years of my life working in bookstores. To my horror, I recently found out there are places all over the country where you can get books for free. They’re called “libraries” and they’re like Blockbuster but for renting reading material. If you’d like to know more about these strange institutions where you’re not required to actually buy the books you read, you’ve come to the right place. An anonymous librarian on Twitter is revealing the hilarious trends associated with libraries and their patrons.

It only takes one bad opinion on Twitter to launch a mean-spirited but funny meme. Sadly, if you’re on Twitter, you will one day be ratio’d. (“Ratio’d” is when there are more (usually snarky) replies to your tweet than RTs and Faves, Mom.). Hopefully, though, when that day comes, you’ll take it in stride. A since-deleted tweet giving people “Harsh Writing Advice” claimed that if you’re a writer, your fellow writers should be seen as competition, plain and simple. On the one hand, this perfectly sums up how to make it in any capitalist industry that requires standing out, finding...

I’m mostly thinking about food between my brain showing me cringe-worthy memories and playing the Billboard Top 100 on a loop. Anyway, smart people deserve to laugh just as much as dumb people. I hope they find the time to enjoy these jokes since it must feel so lonely in America if you’re a person capable of abstract thought. I wouldn’t know. I’m a sentient dumpster that only...

I Reviewed Jerry Seinfeld’s Book In Jerry Seinfeld’s Style

Seinfeld voice: I don’t really get the whole “writing a book” thing. I mean, the most important books are short, and the long ones are too intimidating to finish. Why don’t these writers save us both some time and write some shorter books? Instead of reading all these make-em-ups by old dead guys, I recently picked up Jerry Seinfeld’s Is This Anything? and I absolutely loved it. I started talking like him. I started thinking like him. It’s a curse! A curse, Jerry! Thankfully, I was able to share my opinion of the book on Goodreads shortly after I finished...

I spend way too much time on Goodreads. Frankly, it’s a wonderful place to brag about what you’re currently reading so that strangers know you are smart and like all the right books. Also, Goodreads is a great place to find insane one-star reviews for classic works of literature. Honestly, if the entire site were devoted to bashing Tolstoy and Austen in creative ways, I’d like it more. Unfortunately, there are people who “sincerely” “enjoy” good books who ruin the site with positive reviews.

Myths are more like fairy tales. The moods and petty grievances of the gods affect the living in seemingly arbitrary ways. Of course, they’re the basis for all human storytelling, so they must offer something deep. Well, not according to these hilarious memes about the weird and hilarious things that the characters in myth do.

Who doesn’t love Waldo (or Wally if you’re from the UK)? He’s traveled time and space through utter chaos and seems genuinely unfazed. He wears the same look of bemused wonder no matter where he shows up. That’s why I think it’s incredible that when he shows up in paintings, he’s still as relaxed as ever. The Tumblr called “Vintage Waldo” photoshops the classic characters from Where’s Waldo into famous pieces of art. It’s fun. You’ll like it. The site even places the lore of the paintings into the Waldo canon: “Once upon a time, in a desperate attempt at...

If you’re asking yourself, “who has time to read anymore?” you’re not alone. Honestly, I spend an unwarranted amount of time looking at books in a bookstore when I should just be reading what I already have at home. What can I say? Being enthusiastic about literature is way easier than actually getting through another 600-page novel. Nevertheless, we’re lucky the following booklovers spent some time writing jokes about reading instead of actually...

I’ve Spent Way Too Much Time Trolling The @Goodreads Twitter Account (32 Tweets)

Goodreads is an Amazon-owned social media platform devoted to mostly user-generated book reviews. You know, like giving To Kill A Mockingbird a 1-star rating because “the teacher who assigned it ruined the book for me.” Never mind the fact that a book is good. Frankly, Goodreads isn’t even there for people to review books. Honestly, it seems more like a therapy session for people who can’t afford therapy. Users are on there leaving 2,000-word reviews about their last breakup, and then tangentially referencing whatever book they gave a bad rating. Suffice it to say, I don’t love the website. Don’t...

The @SparkNotes Twitter account is as funny as it is informative. If you depended on them during high school, you’re in luck. They’re still worth reading. Frankly, I was a slow reader in school, and I needed SparkNotes if I wanted to survive. Don’t get me wrong. I opened the books and got the vibe. But, I needed some backup if I wanted to pass the tests. Luckily, SparkNotes is still in business. And apparently, the person running their Twitter account has read every piece of required reading ever. Writing these jokes would be my dream job, so that’s why...

This Instagram Account Is Devoted To Sharing Hilarious But Fake Music Facts (39 Pics)

I have a confession to make. When I’m not reading, I’m listening to music and thinking of dumb fake lyrics to songs. Unfortunately, those lyrics are too cringeworthy to post here. Luckily, I made an Instagram account called @FakeMusicFact to scratch my musical comedy itch. It’s perfect if you love music and looking to laugh to yourself. Or, if you’re more ambitious, you can send it to someone older in your family and confuse/anger them. How many times have I told my dad that King Crimson started as a polka band, just so I could watch him search Google for...

Woman’s Notes In Charles Bukowski Book Go Viral Because, Well, They’re Spot On (28 Pics)

Charles Bukowski wrote one of my favorite books of all time, Post Office. He also wrote some poetry that, well, isn’t as beloved by all. If humor, as George Saunders put it, is “the truth told too fast,” Bukowski’s one of the funniest writers who ever lived. He spits his disgusting truths with no filter or drawn-out apology. Many people enjoy Bukowski’s writing because of his flaws. One woman, however, saw the flaws for what they were and wrote as much in the margins of the book. Thankfully, someone picked up the used book later and shared said notes. As...
