“You’ll love this book!” a friend will gush
But expectations turn to mush.
For often what they recommend
Will make you ask, “What kind of friend
Would like this slop?” But now you’ll find
You’re in therecommended
With choices, two; let’s take a look.
Invest the time to read the book
Or fib, and justpretend
And of this problem thus you’re rid.
Return the book with “thanks a lot!”
…Unless, of course, you’re quizzed on plot.
