Book club

My literature collection has grown substantially. The book case that I have in my room is actually being used as a book case instead of storage. I’m practically a library compared to my friends. When they need to borrow a book to read, they come to be instead of the library.

The following books are the ones that I am currently in the progress of reading. Some of them I’ve already started and some of them I’ve just glanced through. Chances are, when I’m done with one, I might have to restart the others because it’s been so long since I’ve read the beginning. Here they are, in no particular order.

That’s a list of twelve books containing over 4500 pages. That’s an average of 375 pages per book. The twelve books also average out to be about one book per month. So that means that I’m about ten months behind on my reading. I’ve managed to get a lot of reading done before because I spent a lot of time on the bus. Now that I’m driving to work, I barely have time to read during the commute. With work and other side projects along the way, I don’t know where I’ll find the time to read.

And on top of this, there’s also my monthly subscription to GQ and Maxim. Maxim doesn’t take long to read because I’m just looking at the pictures and stuff but GQ can take some time. Every issue of GQ varies in size. The last couple of issues have been quite bulky. Most of the pages mainly contain advertisement but I like to see what style is in.
