Oh, how I miss working. I don't really miss work, it's the commute that I miss. You see, I had a 1 1/2 hour commute each way by train. I was able to read a book a week, sometimes more.
I still love books, but I find it so hard to find the time to read now that I'm retired. There always seems to be something else to do. I have such a backlog of books and now I've learned that James Patterson has another book in his Women's Murder Club series. There's a biography of Yogi Berra that I simply have to read, Dan Brown has another book coming out soon, and I just found out that Lis Wiehl who is a legal analyst for Fox News has written her first novel, Face of Betrayal which is about three women - a reporter, a Federal Prosecutor and an FBI agent - as they investigate the disappearance of a senate page. It looks very interesting. Iris Johansen also has a new book out. When are these people going to take a break so I can catch up with them?
Maybe I'll try setting aside an hour each day to read. I tried that a few years ago, but gave it up because it seemed that my phone never stopped ringing, even though I normally got few calls.
Or, maybe I can sleep less and use that time to read.
Or, I could just try a little self-discipline and sit down and read.
