i sort of tend to read a bunch of different books simultaneously...and sometimes that "reading" entails skimming, or hopping around between chapters, or fast forwarding to the last page. not so much a traditionalist when it comes to reading books from front to back and cover to cover. matt gives me a hard time about it, but i have noticed that 6 years of marriage and 13 years of friendship have rubbed off on him: he now reads multiple books at once now too, and is kind of ok if he doesn't quite get to the end of a book. i have two equally high stacks of books on my bedside table, and i thought the books represented a good summary of what's rolling around in my head at the moment - a good current self portrait of me so to speak.

the funny thing is, i'll probably be sort of reading half of these books a year from now too. that's ok, it's about the journey not the destination, right?


  1. At least you are reading. The authors on my book shelf are commonly composed of Dr. Seuss, Sandra Boyton, and Beatrix Potter. Day-in and day-out, they are not exactly what you would call mind blowing. :)

  2. wait, have you really only been married for 6 years?! um, my brain is having a hard time now with the timeline of when we met.

    anyway, what a good stack of books! i personally can't get through them if i read them all at the same time BUT it doesn't seem to stop me from having a similar stack of random at my bedside. i do love the healthy sleep habits book...enjoy your year of good reads! love luv
