You 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?
