at one time. I really was juggling too many!
My new system, not counting long-term devotional reading material, is:
One book on Catholic spirituality
One work of fiction
(In other words, no more than two books at a time, not counting the Bible, short story collections, and poetry collections.)
I've set aside Henry David Thoreau's "Walden" for now; but I do plan to read it sometime
during the winter, when I'm feeling walled in!
