The Greatest Book I’ve Never Read, Yet

Geek Culture

Img_8402Img_8402You look at me every day, Anathem

First from the top of my desk where I was going to get to you the day I brought you home from Costco.  But life is busy with three kids, a job and school.  You understood.  You moved to the shelf above the desk after a few weeks.  You knew I was not ignoring you.  I am going to read you.

No, seriously, I’m going to reach up right now and crack you open. . . .  OK, I’m back, my wife had a question about the DVR.  I’m really going to start again tonight. Whoa, it’s already 10 pm?  I’ve got to be at work early tomorrow morning.  I don’t dare start now, I’ll be up ’til 2.

OK, I’m back.  Where are you?  Things got shifted around during the holidays.  Ooh, shiny, a new iMac for Christmas.  How do I work Quicksilver?  Hey, son, wash your hands before you touch a white keyboard.

Whew, finally a night out by myself at the bookstore, with a gift card in hand (Thanks Bonnie!). Hey, The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide in one volume.  On sale!  W00t!

Oh, sorry.  I haven’t finished you yet. I know you’re patient.  But I still haven’t gotten past page 2. 

From what I’ve heard on Twitter, neither have some other GeekDad readers. 

I think I need a vacation just to catch up on my reading.  What books have you shelved that you wish you were reading?
