    At first I thought, “Oh, I should keep tabs on the books I read because I forget what I did yesterday.” And then when I thought about the great difference in the number of books you’ve read in a year and the number I’ve read, and I would be ashamed to even think I need to count.

    *sigh* Someday I want to be devoted to something, to be eaten up in the pleasure of something that I can’t help but do all the time. I’m afraid I haven’t the resolve.
