It has come to my attention that I am reading a lot (maybe too many) books at the present moment. I probably should just finish some of them, but honestly, I don’t want to stop reading any of them. Perhaps you will have some advice for what I should focus on?

At this moment in my life, I am reading:

The Watchmen, which I need to finish before the movie comes out.
Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles
The Pilgrim’s Way by J. Nelson Kraybill
From Where You Dream by Robert Olen Butler
Writers on Writing ed. by Jane Smiley
Wicked by Gregory Maguire
and an issue of Mother Earth News.

Not to mention what I’m reading for the classes I’m teaching (think David Sedaris meets Ted Kooser) and the other odd stuff I peruse round the web and doctor’s offices. I love being this buried in books, but I also love finishing books – so if you have a suggestion for where I should focus my attention, please share.
