What books do you have next to your bed right now? How about other places in the house? What are you reading?
I’ve got a couple of piles of books near my bed. In one stack, I’ve got “Acacia,” “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest” and the book I am currently reading “An Autumn War.”
Another has a collection of “Spider-Man” comics from my childhood (good for a nice trip down memory lane) as well as a couple of other things that I eventually plan to read.
Of course, I’ve got my pile of books that I’ve checked out of the library in another room. I try to keep the library books I’m not reading together so I won’t be running around the house trying to figure out where I put this one or that one when I’m ready to read the book or it’s time to take them back.
I’ve also got a stack in my bedroom of the Hugo nominees I haven’t read for this year that I would like to read before the award winner is announced. It’s going to be a busy summer reading-wise.
I think that not having a stack or two of books you want to read is just a shame. And my secret to a long life is a healthy to be read pile. How can you die when there are so many good books left to read?
