There is a stack of books on my kitchen table that just keeps growing and I can't seem to finish reading a single one. They're an interesting group, poetry, fiction and non, contemporary and ancient. They have seductive covers in colors that for an unknown reason tend almost overwhelmingly to red or reddish orange and black.
The titles are seductive too: Book of Longing; The Sculpture and Sculptors of the Greeks; The Golden Ass; Shop Class as Soulcraft; Metomorphoses; Athenian Red Figure Vases; The Golden Compass/The Subtle Knife/The Amber Spyglass; Lords of the Sea; History of the Peloponnesian War; The Omnivore's Dilemma.
I need to pick one. There are reasons for each. A couple of them are due back at the library soon; another I'm already more than halfway through and it's been very interesting so I should just finish it; etc... Reasons, but apparently not true motivation.
