Recursive reading…

…or something like that.

I am presently (well, almost finished) reading John Hodgman’s book, The Areas of My Expertise, which I first mentioned here.

Something strange happened somewhere in the middle of the appendix to the paperback edition. The book actually mentioned the exact store in which I had purchased the book. What’s more, the store was mentioned inasmuch as the author had called the store to determine that the store carried no copies of this book!
