On having time

On the plus side, I’ve had the time to read like nobody’s business. In the past week our so I’ve read:

The Book Thief
Olive Kitteridge
Blown to Bits
Never Let Me Go
To Kill a Mockingbird
Catcher in the Rye
Franny and Zooey
The Perks of Being a Wallflower

and old copies of AAA magazines lying in the basement toilet on top of the waste paper basket. C has kindly offered to mail me books all the way from California! Before I could thank him, he asked – very earnestly – for a list of all the books I had ever read so there won’t be any repeats.

I had to ask him to repeat the question before I understood completely. All the books I have ever read! I can barely remember the books I read last year.

Anyway the point is, I can get a lot of reading done. Catch up on all the culture I missed out on during term. (You’d expect there to be a lot of culture absorption and culture making going on at college, but not in my experience. Not since I did engineering anyway.)
