Halfway through the year and I’ve only read 12 books!

I’ve been feeling bad about this, like I haven’t been reading enough, until I read that one in four Americans didn’t read a single book last year! (Even the Norm half of vickyandnorm read a book this year, and Norm never reads!)

And even my normal 38 or so books a year pales in comparison to someone like pussreboots who has read 26 books this month and over 250 just this year!

Here I am worrying about finding the time to read 2,500 books in my lifetime, when I could just be sitting by the pool and staring at the clouds!
