Seven books. Some hardcover, some quite large.
I looked at her. "You can't bring all seven books."
"But I need them!"
"You can bring them in your suitcase."
"But what if I get bored on the plane?"
"It's a one-hour flight. You don't need seven books. Three of these are going in the suitcase."
"Child, you cannot carry this backpack with seven books in it. And I'm not carrying it for you."
*child attempts to hoist backpack and utterly fails her Strength roll*
*child gives aggrieved sigh and removes three books*
*child gives mild glare*
So her mother's daughter.
That, and she complained about another book earlier this evening. Her exact complaint was about the "lack of editing".
