Isn't that better?

I mean, if you can't have him, then no other woman can either! ('Cause, you know, the chances of two people from different countries meeting is rather slim...)

When I read a book, I hold it in my right hand for the first half and my left hand for the second half (approximately). There is a good reason for this. You're not allowed to post any more in the thread until you can say what it is.

I think it must be.

Unless it's the animal room from the secret Hounfour in GK1?

Edit: @Step: Because right after you've read the first part you only have the second half left?

I see what you did there. But no.

Shibito can be very dangerous and should not be unleashed by any means, especially book reading.

Indeed.

And they might do that weird near-inescapable strangling attack on you while you're reading, which is very annoying but makes for one of the most intense gaming experiences of all time.

When the balance shifts so more pages are on the left, you shift to your left hand to ensure palm support for the heavier side of the book throughout?

(Possibly I shouldn't take this so seriously but I am tired and find it amusing to guess for some reason!)

I found the same solution but I was too lazy to type all that.

Indeed that is correct. Congratulations for being less lazy than tsa.

Now for the more difficult question. Why do I read books with one-hand in the first place?

Spoiler:
Anyone whose mind immediately went into the gutter, shame on you. The answer does not involve the other hand handling human anatomy, either mine or anyone else's.

Well at least I don't have a mind as dirty as yours Step .
I think you needed the other hand to stroke your cat, and now your cat has passed away you are still in the habit of reading one-handed. Or now you stroke Mrs. Urhan.

No, clearly he's in a public place, reading everything out loud in a Shakespearian manner.

That must be it, you're declaiming the text to any who will listen around you and therefore need a hand free for expressive gestures.

+1 Dr UPtimist.

Where can I book tickets for your next performance Step?
