Cryptonomicon is still good going whenever I have time to pick it up, but that doesn’t mean I don’t feel an ongoing and recently gnawing need to feed greed. Which is rather absurd, given that American Gods has languished, unopened, for far too long on my bedside table and needs a lot of TLC, The Prince really should get reread soon so I can return it to the guy I borrowed it from six months ago, and I really want to finish Love In The Time Of Cholera some day instead of reading it halfway three times and inexplicably abandoning it each time despite liking it very much.
So I suppose that means I shouldn’t go out and buy Atonement today then.
Of course there is also the small matter of all the other books that remain unread and completely unfamiliar, such as Cases And Materials In Company Law, Cheshire And North’s Private International Law, Dworkin’s Law’s Empire, Shaw’s International Law…
I think this all boils down to an acute case of eyes bigger than brain.
