Being a reader is sort of like being president, except reading involves fewer state dinners, usually. You have this agenda you want to get through, but you get distracted by life events, e.g. books arriving in the mail/World War III, and you are temporarily deflected from your chosen path.

--Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree

Isn't that the truth. I will resume reading from the January to-be-read shelf once I finish the Hornby, which accompanied L.'s dreadfully boring-looking computer book through the mail.
