I feel like wheelie bags are the fanny packs of the book-carrying-device world

A few minutes with a 3 hole punch and a big binder and you can have a text with removable pages. (Or better yet, my property text last term came debound and pre-punched.) That way, you only need a small binder with the relevant pages for each day. (I put the entire week's reading in one 3/4" binder). That and a laptop fit quite easily into a backback. (As a lover of books, it was painful to watch the guillotine chop through the first one....but believe me, it is worth it!)


You can also cut the spine of your book yourself. Take a box cutter and slice of the cover and spine, but leave the glue that binds the pages. Then just split your book into smaller chunks yourself.

Some of these books are just ridiculous. My Con Law book was just over 5 lbs. I split the book into 5 smaller pieces.

My chiropractor told me to get one when I was in high school, and another chiropractor told me to get one when I was in college. I didn't. It would have been social suicide. Now, I could pretty much care less about how cool I look...but...stiiiiillll there's something about rolling your backpack around. I don't know if I could do it. I think I would rather suffer from back pain. Even now. 10 years out of high school. I won't make fun of anyone that rolls their books around though 8)

ok new plan...
fannie packs are only acceptable when biking nowadays.
so... WHEELIE BAG SIDE CARS.

or maybe I'll just modify a razor scooter so if anyone asks I can just be like "what? that's my scooter. I'm cool."

I think book straps were an 1850s thing. I watched Back to the Future last night, I don't remember a single book strap.

BTW, I'm using BTF as persuasive authority.

Why not be ambitious and make it binding.

I walk almost a mile one way to school and I will tell you there are days I wish I had one of those.

That inference is not warranted by the authority itself. No judge will take a movie about a kid who travels through time from 1985 to 1955 as binding. It's not even good persuasive authority. That's why I explained my use.

Oh, here is another thought sparked by the "I walk two miles to school" comment.

I hope the people who manage to get wheelie bags caught in the subway turnstiles die in three separate fires. That is all.
