We had one book due at the library. I was planning to run to work. So why not a stop at the Redmond library?
I already had everything I needed in my office, and I’d rather avoid the backpack if I can, so I decided to just carry it. My fallback plan was to just cup it in my hand, but I wanted to try something with a bag. I originally grabbed the bag to keep the book out of the rain, but then I realized I could use the handles:
This is one of those reusable, unstructured bags. I wrapped the handles around the bag (definitely keeps the water out). Then the loops of the handle were the perfect distance from my palm that I could put my middle fingers through them. The bag then had some tension and pretty much just stayed in place.
It worked fairly well for a few miles, but I’m not going to make a daily habit of it.
