My List

When I get a book recommendation or come across a reference to an interesting book, I add it to “my list.”  Lately I think I should title that list “Who Are You Kidding?”

It’s a long list. Some of the entries on it are so old that I’m no longer interested in the subject of the book.

I love reading.  It’s pretty much my only remaining hobby.  For many years I’ve probably read a book a week on average.  But these days I’m lucky to find a half hour a day for reading.  With over half of 2014 behind us now, I’ve only read 18 books this year and the pace is slowing.  I’ve only finished one book since May 16.

I’ll keep adding to the list and I expect that once winter rolls around I’ll be able to make a bit of a dent in it.  There are lots of great books remaining to be read.  I may never get around to reading most of them, but maybe I can take some comfort in knowing that they’re “on my list.”
