Honestly, miss, I was only reading

Like there’s a chance I’d get away with that line:

Bookbinder Heels by Anthropologie

“A well-read pair of pumps,” says Anthropologie of these “Bookbinder Heels,” which practically demand that you check out the detailing on the, um, spine. It says, incidentally, “VOL XII,” which is no indication of size. (Doesn’t come in a twelve. Eleven, yes.) Which means that if you really wanted your shoe size emblazoned on your heel, you’d still have to wear your bowling shoes, which almost certainly don’t have a 3¾-inch heel or any sort of platform, and probably don’t cost $168 either.

    I thought it’s an USB port, for clandestine work in book archives!

    Now that’s an idea, assuming it’s possible to get WiFi in the stacks.

    Or a salt-n-pepper shaker for lunch-on-the-go?
