Why does my phone not know how to spell "giraffe?"

Predictive text has bad priorities.

Count down

Have started reading the Count of Monte Cristo. Up to page 89. Dantes has been the victim of terrible foul play and trickery and is in a dungeon. My understanding is that this is a book about revenge, which I suppose he will now spend the remaining 1160 pages exacting in some way or another.

Am wondering whether it is a mistake to be reading this now when am heading overseas in the not-very-distant-at-all future. While it seems like promising aeroplane reading, it may be too heavy to lug around.
