When You Mix Scientists and Bookworms
I recently loaned a book to a colleague. Previous to passing the title along, I had been raving about the book having a really cool, unexpected element (not exactly a twist but still very cool). My enjoyment of the book declined precipitously and so then I felt my previous recommendation wasn't quite right. To make all this clear, I drew a little graph on a post-it note and stuck it to the book. I figured we'd get a good laugh out of my silly graph and then it would be recycled. But, to my delight, she returned the book to me today, post-it note intact but with one small addition.
