If you’re like me, and I know I am, you can never read just one book at a time. At any given time I have four or five books in various stages of reading to which I am giving various degrees of attention. Up at bat are the following:
- Bad Astronomy by Phil Plait. (Kindle progress = 51%) I am a skeptic and Phil is one of our heroes. The first of many skepticism/science/humanism books that will end up on the 100, I imagine. But this is my lunchtime/coffee break reading, so it’ll likely be slower going.
- Goodbye, Columbus by Philip Roth. (Kindle progress = 12%)
- 40: A Doonesbury Retrospective by Garry Trudeau. (not a Kindle book) Yes it’s an anthology of comic strips but I am sooooo counting it. I contend that any volume heavy enough to serve as zeppelin ballast qualifies.
I’ll probably have Goodbye, Columbus done in a few days and the Doonesbury anthology done even faster, which will bring me up to five books and I can check the first Roth title off the checklist. Yippee!
