Irrational Rationing :: Keith :: 3

Eventually books became so rare that it was necessary to enforce rationing, so each citizen was issued only a small handful of individual letters to read each day.

Janet gazed longingly at her tiles, hoping the next day might allow her the k and the u that she really needed to complete her revolutionary statement.

I’m assuming she already has the necessary f and c and several explanation points?  If not, I’ll be happy to help a sister out.
Truth be told, this year I am way over my book ration this year. And since I discovered my all I have to do is tell my iphone that I’m blind “Alex” or “Samantha” will read to me, I’ve been switching between reading and roll-your-own audiobooks at an alarming rate.

I do like the audiobooks but I’m just so picky about who I’ll allow to read to me - good male voices are like picking the right wood grain to me, it’s all about texture and feel.  I spend too much of my day already listening to robots read to me.
