I am pretty sure that you, like me, have more than one book going at a time and more than one book in line to be your next read.
I read so much for work (in addition to the books I want to read) that paradoxically I am always looking for something new to read in order to break up my never-ending reading pile. Right now I am reading a manuscript, two galleys, a book we are about to publish, one we just published, and Lena Dunham’s new book, which I am quite enjoying even though I don’t like Girls. I have piles of books and manuscripts and galleys all over my house, but no matter how engrossed I am in everything I have to read, I am always on the lookout for a book in which to escape. I am constantly on the prowl for something that will distract me from the “task” of reading and remind me of the joy of reading.
