The following quote struck my funny bone, and especially at this time of the year, I figured it was apropos:
“I read about the evils of drinking, so I gave up reading.”
Unfortunately, I can’t remember who said this, but if any of you recognize this I’d be interested in being reminded.
Of course, the quote is not autobiographical at all, since I’m far more addicted to reading than I am to drinking! It’s a good thing an additiction to books is socially acceptable.
