Booking Saturday

"Booking" can mean moving rapidly, as in "By the time he got to the first turn, he was really booking."

"Booking" can mean making a reservation, as in "We booked a cruise to the Alaska next summer." Well, maybe not in this economy. has helpfully reminded me that the "reservation" can also be in the jail, as in "Book him, Dan-o."

"Booking" can mean getting the highest grade in a law school class, as in "She's so smart--she booked Torts and Property." Even though they don't actually give out books as prizes anymore.

"Booking" can mean reading. Does anyone else remember a 1970's public service spot promoting the library that had shots of different people saying "Book it!"?

Good grief! What a punctuation train wreck that was.

Today I'll be booking it in a different way: over to the book fair.

Maybe I'll have something interesting to post about afterwards! One of those elusive early Booker Prize winners, perhaps? Cross your fingers!

  1. Pity the poor people learning English....ohmy goodness. How was the fair?


Talk to me! I love external validation.
