A paragon of patience, my wife. When we are watching DVDs, I sometimes stop the picture in order to peer closely at the covers of books and magazines, or the headlines on dummy newspapers. For example, last night we watched "The Expendable Agent" from the second season of Get Smart!, first broadcast 4 March 1967. There's a scuffle in an airport and a rack of paperbacks is knocked over. I identified several of the books. Look at the top rack, far right. That's the first of James Blish's Star Trek episode adaptations. The book at far left, by the agent's pistol, is far clearer in another scene. It is Strange Happenings by Michael Hervey, an Ace book.
