What I'm Reading and Why I'm Doing This
Does this ever happen to you? You try to remember what you had for dinner or lunch last week. Or a few days ago. Or—heck, let’s be honest—yesterday. And all you can come up with is ______.
Yeah, me too.
And it’s not just with food. Every so often, someone will ask me what books I’ve recently read and I’ll strain to remember any of them. I know, with certainty, that they exist. And that I spent hours of my life immersed in them (to varying degrees of satisfaction and enjoyment). But in that moment, hardly any of these books come to mind.
As someone who adores books – and writes them for a living – this lack of oversight seems just plain wrong. So I’ve decided to change it.
As a way of keeping track of the bookshelf in my brain, I’ll be listing the books that come into and out of my life. And because I have a website that I don’t update nearly often enough, I figured: Why not share this list with the world? Or at least the tiny sliver of the world that might find such things noteworthy.
If nothing else, hopefully the next time someone asks what I’ve been reading, I won’t look like such a dummy.
