This list causes great anxiety for me right now. My stack of books is overwhelming. They are everywhere. I’m still trying to tackle the Caro books–Power Broker and the Johnson bios. I started Battle Cry of Freedom and I held up the white flag before the war even began in the book. There’s the new Michael Chabon, the TWO Bruce Springsteen bios, the book about fracking, the book about health care reform, and the book about the history of the internet. Plus some random fiction I’ve accumulated over the past few months. Oh, and the David McCullough beast that is “The Great Bridge.”
I’ll get through them, someday. Part of the wonder of collecting so many books is that you’ve always something new to turn to. But right now I have, quite literally, so much to read.
