I think they assign things to students which are way over their heads, which destroy your love of reading, rather than leading you to it. I don’t understand that. Gosh.

I had a briefcase at one point, but it was a kind of 1980s New Wave briefcase. It was made of some kind of cardboard and it had metal hinges. It was kind of faux industrial looking, and I used to carry my books in it rather than a backpack. I didn’t want to have normal student accoutrements.
