Counting Books

September 23, 2008

I was taking stock of what I am currently reading yesterday and came to the conclusion that it is close to 15 books in total now, ranging from three audio books, all biographies.  Then old school paper books.  There is a biography of Shakespeare, one of London, two books on general philosophy, another compilation of Nietzsche, a book about Sylvia Plath, one about the torture committed by American Soldiers in Iraq on civilians.  There are a few others but I can’t think off the top of my head without looking.  On the plus side I finished two yesterday, another biography of Shakespeare and a Bill Bryson.  Ah yes, still reading the book on the moon landings.  My point is that I need to cut down to four or five books at a time only.  It’s not that it’s confusing, it’s just hard finding the time to read them all regularly.

Other news?  I have written a fair amount of my book and it seems and feels like it is going well.  Haven’t had chance to write today though as it was my daughters first birthday!  I’m going to update her site tomorrow with pictures and maybe some video I took with the camcorder.  It seems so much longer than a year since I held this tiny little person in my arms for the first time.  Now she is such a little lady!
