A friend of mine told me to read Naked by David Sedaris and so I am. I bought it over two months ago and have been gallumphing through it at about two pages per day. Tonight, in a fit of crazed eyeball-roving, I read almost five pages! This is killing me. A book like Naked used to be a one-night stand for me. Now I hardly read anything that’s not on the screen or in one of my favorite magazines (Brill’s, SI, George, Harper’s). Starting tonight I am going to rededicate myself to being the readingest fool I know. It might mean there are fewer updates (Not!), but I am sure I can spare a few more minutes of sleep each night to make sure I am getting my recommended daily allowance of dead trees in my life. I truly love reading. I started doing it so long ago … so very long ago … and it, along with music, has always been my great solace in life. There is nothing to free your mind like reading a good book. And I gotta tell ya … My mind? It needs some release sometimes.
