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.
