Reading Books

Much like Michael Honey I have too many books and not enough time to read them.  At the moment I'm trying to get enough peace and quiet to sit down and really enjoy Neal Stephenson's “Quicksilver“; it's one of those books that I'd love to spend a day or two just enjoying.  Unfortunately I have to read books in fits and starts, just because I'm too damn busy.  M, (Hi M!) keeps threatening to lend me books, but I have too many things on my plate.

There are however books that I can read in the quiet moments at work.  It only really happens with non-fiction, as my memory is so bad, I very quickly lose track of the plot of fiction books.  The book I'm reading at present is “London – The Biography“; very well written with each chapter taking on a topic rather that a period of time.  It is a huge book, but can easily be put down and picked up again (using my Underground ticket as a bookmark).  Diamond Geezer already reviewed it, and I've already got the other books in his Christmas present list.  It goes to show that “great minds think alike“.
