Day Four: What's the Last Book You Flung Across the Room?

It's been a while since I've picked up on my progress of this 15-Day Book Blogger Challenge. Since I'm late to the party anyway, why not take my time? So here we are, on Day 4!

The last book I flung across the room wasn't a book I was reading for fun; it was actually a textbook.

Why? Because I saw a huge spider crawl up against the wall.
Normally, I leave spiders be in their own corners, but they had been creating a bunch of new baby spiders that grew up quickly and moved across the room into MY space. 

When adult spiders started crawling over my shoulder, I knew it was time to do a purge. Preferably with a textbook that put as much space between me and the spider as possible. 

And let's be honest: I don't usually kill spiders right away because I'd much rather let my husband do it. 

Lately, he'd been slacking off on spider-killing: the downside of having a reluctant hero is that sometimes you have to do the dirty work yourself.


To Sheldon Axler: YOU ARE MY NEW HERO. 

Using the powers of algebra and trigonometry, I slew the spider and wiped its entrails against my husband's laundry.
