we take library-ing very seriously in this house.
what’s in your to-read pile? how many books do you read at once? tell me what you’ve recently read that is still bouncing around in your brain—it could be a sentence, maybe it’s the whole book. tell me everything, friend.
reminding myself of this oliver burkeman quote helps keep me from feeling like a bookworm failure:
“…this means treating your "to read" pile like a river (a stream that flows past you, and from which you pluck a few choice items, here and there) instead of a bucket (which demands that you empty it).”
