In our downsizing kick, I sold most of my books last year, and did another round several months ago. I had made far too many well-intentioned purchases that would eventually just end up lingering on the shelf, unread.
But I’ve been reading a lot lately, more now than ever. I’m lucky to work within walking-distance of the Boston Public Library. I started with safe genres, like jewelry and simplifying. And then, a happy accident a few months ago: the internet was broken at work, so I did the work I could do without a computer and was dismissed after only an hour. I spent the next few hours wandering the stacks. And now my new pet topic is string theory. For laymen, of course, so a lot of Michio Kaku.
