Tough choices

As I look at the stack of unread books on my shelf lately, I am struck by the fact that each one limits my choices. By choosing to read one book, I am choosing not to read another one this week.

I think this is why I haven't read the Silmarillion yet, nor Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. By investing time in those tomes, what books am I giving up?

I'd love to just borrow the time piece from "The Girl, the Gold Watch, and Everything" and resolve this conundrum.

We love reading at our house, too!

I have the same dilemma, trying to decide what to read next. What do we put off and what do we read now....decisions, decisions, decisions.

I know exactly what you mean. Every minute I have for pleasure reading is precious. What if I choose poorly?
