A lot seems to be revolving around books these day.
On one hand we are moving our books back into our rearranged library (we had all our bookcases and chairs in that room moved when we did the Lounge). We're using this as a major opportunity for us to 'purge' tons of stuff - mainly tons of books that are never looked at. This has proven to be a big task. Not counting just the physical work (books are heavy!), the decision-making process of what to keep or not keep is a lot. I think we've overcome our tendency (particularly mine) to hang on to things. We've identified about 50% of our inventory to get rid of. We're still trying to figure out the best way to do that.
Then there is reading books. When I was working full bore, by the time I'd made dinner I would have been exhausted. I didn't have energy to do anything other than plop in a chair and put on the TV to just fill the void. Now I have lots of energy at the end of the day so I'm reading tons. I've got three books going at once - two history books and a novel. The TV is rarely on except to watch recorded rugby or soccer games.
And there is MY book. I am in the rewrite process in earnest. I'm working through one of the hardest sections - one that requires major changes from the original - and I think I've got the story line revision worked out.
So here's to books!
