I haven't been reading as much as I'd like. This is a serious problem for me. I read at a book-a-day pace, with average books. As many as three if they're light and on the shorter side. But I don't have the time, and I can't read certain books when I'm writing. Books with formal styles or anything written in present tense affect my voice, and not for the better.
I have to sneak stories in between projects, or while I'm sick or flying. My to-be-read pile got so tall that I had to stop buying books and just keep a list. Now that list is so long it's slowing down my hard drive. What happens if I can't read everything I want to read? Will the combined weight of words crush me?
How do you keep track of these things? Do you feel like you're missing out? Are there any must-read stories that came out recently that I actually Must Read?
