You Saw This Coming, Didn’t You?June 15, 2009 at 11:57 am | Posted in Book Blather | 2 Comments
The first two weeks have passed. My reading rate has fallen from an average of 2833 pages per week to 1954. That’s barely over 2/3 what I was reading before, and it includes 90 minutes of family reading a night for one of those weeks.
I guess it’s not so bad, really. That’s just… two 400-page books a week that I didn’t read, or… 56 by the end of the year. In other words, more than most people read all year long.
The good news is, we’re finally about 95% done unpacking. Negotiations are going to begin on the balance between family time, couple time, and alone time. I’ll settle for an hour a day. I still don’t see how everyone else does it.
