I have a tendency to refer to my books by their authors' names. For example, when I'm carrying around a book by Siegfried Kracauer, I may say some of the following things:
"I'd better not forget Kracauer."
"Should I put Siegfried Kracauer in my backpack?"
"I'll have to ignore Siegfried Kracauer for a while."
"I'm going to take Kracauer when I have a bath."
Okay. That sounds weird enough. But I've discovered a way that it's weirder, and a way that has caused me to try to stop that habit: I'm reading a book by my supervisor.
