[URBAN NOTE] Literary hit-and-run

Thursday evening, while walking west towards home along Dupont, I came across the distressing sight of a pile of books dumped carelessly into the westbound lane, very near the intersection of Dupont and Palmerston. It was terrible to see the pile so carelessly spread out over the space of a metre or so, and to hear the crunch of the paperbacks’ spines as cars drove over them. During a pause in the traffic, I dashed out into the street to pick up one relatively nearby book, and found it was a romance novel written Doris Mortman. Carefully, I put the stripcovered book back down on the pavement and went on my way.
