About 2 weeks ago, when I was returning home from vacation, I passed tthrough a small city There were a couple of books I had been meaning to get, but
for some reason, I kept forgetting to order them on line.
Long story short, while I was in the store, I found a book I had heard of, but hadn't put it on my reading list. I shrugged my shoulders, and added
it to the already substantial stack I had. (I am an incurable bookworm, and usually go over budget. That day was no exception.)
I checked out, finished the drive home, and picked up one of my new books. The first one off the top was the one I had not intended to buy. It was
"Liberty and Tryanny" by Mark Levine. I started reading, and as is my want with politically oriented books, I'm underlining like crazy. Imagine
my surprised, when I reached the end of the book, and found two RFID chips in the back of the book.
I actually felt a little paranoid for a couple of minutes. Then I thought about the other books I had bought. They were politically conservative
books as well. I checked. No RFID chips.
Okay, why does the most conservative, the most critical of the three books have a chip, when the other authors aren't lightweights in the
Has anyone else had this happen? I know they use this stuff for theft prevention, but why only Levine's book?
(I bought some fiction, not even remotely political. No chips.?)
Feedback would be appreciated.
