“The books on the right are books that I’ve read,” Ellen explained.
“And the books on the left?” her friend Gretchen asked.
“They are books that I still want to read,” Ellen answered.
“What about those in the middle on their side with the little stuffed dog sitting on top of them?” Gretchen asked.
“Oh those,” Ellen answered. “Those are books that I started to read but they were so bad that I couldn’t finish them.”
“If they were so bad, why keep them?”
“I can’t throw them away,” Ellen said. “People will think I’m illiterate.”
