"The first most teenagers hear of Tranquility is therefore when they are woken from their beds at home at 4am by guards, who place them in a van, handcuffed if necessary, drive them to an airport and fly them to Jamaica..."
Silence by Leonid Andreyev
"When you are in the middle of reading a book, and you need to stop, what do you use to hold your place? I shudder at some of the answers I have heard! The most outlandish one is a slab of raw bacon. Obviously, that should not be used for a host of reasons (no food products, please).
Another thing some people tend to do is turn the corner of the page over. Damaging the book is never a good idea. Other offenders include: hacksaw blade, pencils or pens, gum wrappers, and post-it note papers. The correct answer is a bookmark (preferably made from acid-free paper or card stock). If a bookmark is not acid-free (or you are uncertain), make sure you remove it (as well as any other papers) when you are finished with the book."
