i've almost finished reading this self-help book written by a magician. my good friend sent it to me a long time ago. i can't tell if i'm reading it in earnest or as a gag.

this magician suggests you should try to sneak quarters into people's pockets when they aren't looking. he also talks about acupressure points. what?

i think there should be a self-help book club devoted to reading and discussing these books as literature. i'd join that club. i think these books are fascinating.
but then again, i'm susceptible. we're a certain category of people.

i think this book is helping me? the jury's still out.
it's kind of embarrassing to talk about.
