Multitasking

Based on the size and circumference, I believe this is the empty cardboard tube from a roll of toilet paper.

Makes sense, a lot of people do their reading in the bathroom.

Found in "A Little Commonwealth" by John Demos. Published by Oxford, 2000.

LOL! I never even thought to do that. You have started a new crafting sensation, I'm sure. Preschools everywhere will thank you.

Wow. That seems rather sacrilegious, to put such an item in a book. But, like you said, many people do, um, multitask when occupied in that, um, occupation. (There's really no polite way to talk about it!)

It had to happen sometime!

I admit to sometimes using nothing but a strip of (clean!) toilet paper as a book mark. I justify it with the fact that the alternative would have been to dog-ear!
