So Little Time…

 
One of my favorite sayings is “So many books, so little time”. Mt. Bookpile grows each year despite my reading list. I’ve taken 64 books off this year that I picked up in 2011 or earlier. (No, they’re not all listed on the left – only the ones I’ve reviewed at my web site are showing.) Plus there have been another 20 or so I’ve bought this year that I’ve read.

But I know I picked up at least as many as I’ve read. And now the world is supposed to end tomorrow. Since I’m in California, that actually means it should have already ended in Australia, Asia, and Europe. If the world is ending, how am I ever going to catch up? How will Jim Butcher finish the Dresden File series? How will Carole Nelson Douglas finish the Midnight Louis series?

OK, since the rest of the world is still here, I guess I can relax. I’ll go back to reading one of the books I recently bought, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore.

And yes, the cover really does glow in the dark…

    Isn’t it a great cover? I spent time trying to figure out if there was some clue in the cover (don’t think there is…). And I *loved* this book. Need to buy a copy, since I read the library’s.

    A friend and I were discussing that cover this morning. We both think that cover could mean something, but neither of us are good with codes.

    It’s a fascinating book and one that needs to be re-read to catch all the nuances. I bought a copy – and it’s signed. (I love my independent book store…)
