Too many books...so little time

I seem to have gotten busier lately. Of course I'm sure that has something to do with the whole getting a job thing. And I've been reading more blogs lately as there seems to have been a blogging explosion among my friends (see "friends" sidebar).

So I have an overabundance of books. I went to Montreal last week and came back to 6 books on the holds shelf at the library. Then there was a book I really wanted to read on the one week loan shelf. And I had borrowed a book from Mike to read on the train but ended up not reading much of it then (I had finished all three of my books that I had in Montreal at the cottage over the weekend). I never seem to have any less than 16 books on my request list at the library.

Right now I'm reading Tom Wolfe's The Right Stuff. I've always liked the movie and thought it was time to read the book. I'm also reading Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen Dubner. In my to be read pile from the library I also have Echoes, by Maeve Binchy, Nice Girls Don't get Rich, by Lois Frankel, Pampered Chef: the story of one of America's most beloved companies by Doris Christopher, and The Rich Part of Life by Jim Kokoris. I also have a cookbook and 2 knitting books checked out. I have three books on hold waiting for me to pick them up. They are Queen Bees and wannabees by Rosalind Wiseman, Under the Duvet by Marian Keyes and Watermelon by Marian Keyes.

Some days I think I need to start a book blog. If nothing else so that I can keep track of what the heck I'm reading. I'm not really into the whole literary critique thing. On top of all those books I have oodles of reading to do for work.

There are simply not enough hours in the day.
