The age old problem: Discovering another book to read while buried in a pile


Well, staring down my stack I posted on Sunday hasn’t stopped me from discovering my 6th book for the reading session! Well, actually, my 7th. Since I’ve written here, I started listening to Middlemarch by George Eliot during my arduous data curating sessions each morning. Ah, the troubles of being a reader…

From this week’s NYer:


Until I happen upon a physical copy, I’ll continue with Thich Nhat Hanh and listening to Middlemarch in audiobook format while simultaneously reading LitHub and finding even a few more titles to wonder about…

How are you this week?

  1. Ha! I know this feeling very well… This year I am actually taking the approach of only selecting 2-3 books at a time so I can stay open to new ones that pop up… that Golden Hill looks amazing- I can see why you are tempted!!

    1. I agree with you on approach– I think when I choose 10 books upfront I sometimes over do it. I also think sometimes I put myself in a situation where I have to read books I’m no longer really itching to read. It’s good to pace ourselves 🙂
