Eavesdropping with Matt (Episode Forty-Four: THE WORST BOOK EVER!)

Dedicated to the very friendly, industrious and chatty teens at the Marshall Center in Vancouver, Washington, who had no idea that I was silently taking notes on them like some sort of person who takes notes on wild animals. 

Teen #1: What book did you choose for your AP book report?  I'm reading Alice in Wonderland, but I'm so far ahead of schedule I had to stop.

Teen #2: I haven't even started mine.  I chose The Count of Monte Cristo.

Teen #3: I chose, like, the worst book ever.  Don Quixote.  It's over a thousand pages with tiny print.
