I was going through some old posts, and I came across this one from earlier this year, where I noted my intention to read more of the books that I already own, and then I listed eight books I’d targeted to read this year in particular. To date, I’ve read exactly…none of them.
To be fair, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince doesn’t come out until July. And The Forsyte Saga has moved downstairs to the “Immediately to be read pile” (though it’s been sitting there for a month now.) I’m on vacation next week, and while I usually try to read something set in or about the place I’m visiting, I’m going “home” to San Diego, so I can break the rule. Instead, I’ll be re-reading Dickens’ Bleak House–which I already own, thank you very much.
