Reading List?

I just wrote the following as a comment in someone else's blog, then realized that, "Hell, this would make a fine entry in my own blog." Reduce, reuse, recycle.

You know, when I was a kid, I never understood the concept of the Summer Reading List. Why is there no Spring, Autumn and Winter reading list? Are there people who only read in summer? As I got older, I realized that, yes, there are people who only read in summer. If that much. Then just yesterday, I heard that only 38% of men read books. Sad, and yet...not terribly surprising. Which makes me even more sad.

That being said, I'm currently plodding my way through Albert Camus' The Plague. Unfortunately I'm not quite in the right state of mind for it right now and am not enjoying it as much as I hoped. Too bad, because I've been wanting to read it for some time now. I'm considering putting it away for a while until I'm more ready for it.

"More ready"? My God, I can actually feel the brain cells disintegrating.
