I woke before my wife or daughter yesterday, so while I sat on the couch enjoying a cup of tea I had opportunity to reflect on the many books on my shelves, and my enduring albeit unlikely determination to read them all. I will neither buy nor borrow any more books, I told myself.
Later on in the morning we took a walk over to the library to check our e-mails. I think I did pretty well with my resolution. I came home with seven books. New goal: read these quickly so I can get back to my own shelves!
