yay!  it's not just me.  i've actually been quite
worried about this -- i keep starting books, but
failing to finish them, even though i was quite
thoroughly enjoying them, and even though i want to
finish them, i just put them down at some point and
fail to pick them up again, moving on instead to read
something else.  and i never used to do this.  i used
to devour books whole.  but now... i have lots more
little tiny chunks of time and many fewer large chunks
of time, and i no longer have a strong a desire to
*make* more large chunks of time...
but it is becoming quite embarassing when i think of
all the books which i have started and failed to
i'm very glad i'm not the only one...
