I’m not the only one…

Yes, it is true that I have kept lists of what I have read since 1996. And I have followed along with another fellow who has lists all the way back to 1974.

But today I discovered someone who has both of us beat and it is none other than Art Garfunkel (yes, that one). It seems in addition to writing songs, recording albums, and playing concerts, Mr. Garfunkel has managed to read 980 books since 1968. And I’m not talking about fluff books either. The list is pretty impressive. (During the month that I was born, for instance, he was reading Albert Schweitzer’s J. S. Bach, Volume 1.)

How does he manage to find the time?
