I am a voracious reader. When I think about all the books that I will never be able to read (it just isn’t possible to read them all), it makes me deeply sad. This is not overstatement. I also read lots of books at the same time and always have. I had no idea this was weird until I mentioned it to a friend in middle school and she gave me a look that said that I was even odder than she had thought. Weird or not, I like having a few things going at once.
This is my current nightstand stack. A little parenting, some essays and two novels. I’m also listening to a book on audio – the new Jeanette Winterson (read by the author – woot! woot!), but it ruined the shot. The only real downside to this is that it makes travel heavier. And yes, I know that I could buy a Kindle/Nook/whatever, but then I wouldn’t be reading a book.
What are you reading?
