I read this years ago. Why did I forget to add it to my book list? Why was it misplaced among my book-reading memories? Certainly not because I didn't like it? It's a wonderful collection of short stories. Many of them very tiny.

Is it Matt's fault, maybe? Did he somehow CAUSE this to happen? Did he embed within the stories in the book some sort of CODE? Did the code WORK ON ME in some way?

Am I hypnotized? Should I continue to trust myself? Maybe not, Goodreads. Maybe not.
