Why stop there? I'll explain the 'pile' too. Well, two piles and a bookcase actually. On the 'reading pile' there are fifteen books, plus The Book Of Secrets (read as I write blank page, clean slate, open book), and a book at work in case I ever have a spare moment of something other than sheer panic, and use it to read. At the commencement of the 'reading cycle' I order the books: closest to finished through to longest to finish. Then I alternately, at each reading opportunity, read from the closest and the next in the pile until the closest is finished. Are you following? When the closest is finished, the next 'next in the pile' becomes the main reading book and it too is cycled alternately through the whole pile. Then, it is the turn of the 'chosen' book to be the main book. For each cycle a 'chosen' book is selected by whim. Stick with me, I know it's confusing. Because I am trying to get the pile down to five real books and three virtual ones, I replenish one real book from the 'next-to-read pile' onto the 'reading pile' for every two finished real books. Once I get rid of that pile, they will come from the bookcase. Virtual books will just not be replaced until we get to fewer than three. I won't go into the selection from either the bookcase or the virtual bookcases today—I think I have taxed your logic too much already. Can you see why it is so hard to read a hundred books? Beside the blogs and the knitting and actually day-to-day living, the organisation of reading takes some time! My brain hurts.
Who wore it better?
