My lack of employment has let me make significant inroads into the reading pile. Yesterday, since I had to spend the day babysitting contractors, I brought with me to the new house two magazines (one on photography and the other gay travel) and a book.
I skimmed the gay travel mag, and then I perused (as in, to read thoroughly) the photography magazine. The book was a 305 page novel. I read the entire thing. I'm not a speed reader, but I had most of the day to read it. So it's done.
This is where the problem comes in. I love reading, but these books cost money. Not all are twenty-two dollars, my post title notwithstanding, but some actually are more (okay, some are less). The problem is that I can't keep buying books if I don't have a job. That wouldn't be very smart!
I have a few books left in the stack, but this could soon become a problem! I just have to hope something new comes along soon on the job front, for the sake of the publishing industry. Everyone finger your crosses for me! ;)
