Or, as in my case, on your kitchen table?
In many magazines, such as People or Vanity Fair, there is often a column where famous people are asked what they are reading. Sometimes their answers are something you might expect (Kyle Richards is reading the Fifty Shades trilogy, okay), sometimes they’re a little surprising (Trisha Yearwood read Team of Rivals? did she finish it?), and sometimes a little dubious (Leann Rimes reads?).
Let’s be honest, though…if I were randomly asked what book(s) I am reading right now, chances are I wouldn’t have a stellar, wow-inducing response. I’m often reading a mystery, or only halfway through a couple books, or slogging through something that is a couple years old and it might have a bit of dust on the cover. Right now, I’m reading The Bookman’s Tale. It’s good, I’m almost done. But, the picture below tells the real story: those books have been on my table for a few months, I haven’t opened at least one of them, and I’m not even showing you the books on my nightstand, or the books I have on my desk at work. So many books, so little time. And flat surfaces.
