this is the book i never read....



I always have stacks of books and magazines around my bed. I start one...see a new one around, start that one...before too long I have a dozen half-read books piled up...I envy people who can read a book start to finish before moving onto the next one. I used to be able to do that. Can you?

Sometimes I can do it, though I too have many half read books lying around my bed.
I'm almost done with "The Hour I First Believed" It's borderline irritating, but I can't seem to put it down.

My bedside pile of unread books is as high as the lamp on the table - I often have several books going at the same time & I do usually finish them.

I do! It might take me a month. Or two. Depending on how long it is, but that's the one thing I can stick with beginning to end. A good book. A novel, mind you. Non fiction, not so much.

Lily: Ha! I do that, too. I will be mot liking a book, yet I'm committed to not being BESTED by it, so resolve to finish. It might take me AGES, but I'll be damned if I let a BOOK get the better of Bettye!

Jayne: I always thought maybe I should just make a bedside table OUT of a stack of books!

Wanda: I use to DEVOUR novels...now I read mostly nonfiction - photography, decorating, gardening, etc. I get so ADDICTED to novels that I don't get any other work done once I start reading :-) But I'd like to find a way to fit them back into my life...
