Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" I tried to read this about three years ago. Excellent work, but far more detailed than I'd expected.


message 2: by Will (new) - added it

Will Byrnes I added it after reading a review by a GR friend. Here is the link

God knows when I might get to it, though. I am OCD about my 8-a-month and very large books make that difficult. I already have a considerable stack of fatties awaiting my attention. I need to sneak in some graphic novels so I can make my quote and still get to the bigger books.

Jeanette  "Astute Crabbist" There's always comic books, Will. ;-) As long as they're "books," they count, right?
I'm not OCD about a specific number of books, but I find it frustrating to try to read and absorb big volumes when they're from the library. Sometimes I might want to read only a few pages a day, and that looming due date and possibility someone else might request the book makes me feel like I can't read at my own pace.
