I was perusing my local Half Price Books when I came across a 1955 collection of four short stories by the late, great Isaac Asimov:
Flipping it open, I found some 1955 nerd had already graded the stories for me:
The markings are in pencil, and the handwriting varies a little. Did he grade them all at one time? Or did he grade each one separately, after he finished reading? Does the “OK” become more emphatic as he is increasingly semi-displeased by the stories?
I just picture that ancestral nerd wishing there were some kind of global information network where he could register his semi-disapproval. Poor guy. The word “meh” would not become available to him for another 50 years.
