Whew. No wonder I wear glasses. I’ve just taken account of the books I’ve read this year and the total comes to 36.
I know, that doesn’t sound like a prodigious number, but I spend 3-4 hours a day writing my own stuff. Not an excuse – it’s simply to account for time consumed in the average day. And this doesn’t account for the newspapers, the 4-6 magazines I read per month and a smattering of literary journals. Anyway, there it is – – 36 books, 23 fiction and 13 nonfiction (which makes me a normal fiction writer and an abnormal reader in a world currently enthralled by reality and its TV versions of same.)
What comes next? I think I’ll spend a little more time on this and rate the top fiction and nonfiction books I’ve read this year. Coming up soon.
