I am here to read.

Today I visited Buswell Library at Wheaton College. Visitors are required to sign in at the circulation desk. The attendant asked if I was a visitor as I was signing the guest book which seemed a redundant question. I politely answered, “Yes.” He then asked if I was a prospective student to which I smiled and replied, “No, I am here to read.” He looked perplexed and I quickly continued on my way to, y’know, read.
