I know it’s only been three days since my last post, but I had some time off yesterday, and I realized a thing.  I’ve read 68 books this year.  68!  That’s crazy.  Just bonkers.  It took me years to work up to reading 50 books a year.  It always seemed so impossible, like–how the hell does someone…
