Halt the Presses!

booksNo matter how I categorize and rearrange my reading schedule or reorder and optimize my book shelves, I just can’t seem to get ahead of the new books I uncover which tickle the hairs on my toes in hopeful anticipation. Will they never stop? The way I see it I could use a twenty-three year hiatus on publishing any new texts: then I would have sufficient time for reading all the stuff I already have on my bookshelves and on my iPad.

One thing I have to do is adjust my reading to pick up a little more “non-fiction.” Right now I have at least two years worth of non-fiction reading on my shelves, and that doesn’t include the outdated books written by fading political pundits. Right now I’m doing a little reading into the science of Evolution so I can fully counteract any of those deniers back in the old homestead where Rule #1 is, of course, Don’t Tread On Me.
