What to Read?

I tend to read in spurts. There are times where I will have 3 books going at once. Other times I will slam one right after another. Right now I’m in a funny spot where I don’t have a book that I am reading. I don’t like it. Makes me feel kind of strange.
I’m not going to spend money on books right now. Soon certainly, but not now. The library in my small town, as fine as it is, doesn’t really have what I’m looking for. So I find myself poring over my bookshelves to see what is worth re-reading. Then of course, I come across a few things that I own, but have not read. Let's see....what looks good.
For my business, I’ll be re-reading The Success Principles by Jack Canfield.
For fun I’ll be diving back into The Histories by Herodotus. Never finished. See how far I get this time. Just in case, I’ll be keeping a copy of Hawthorne’s short stories handy, and a couple of early sci-fi lightweights by Rober Heinlein. Something in there should hold me until I come up with something better.

You can come to the Wyman Library and pick something up. Tracy

I understand the "how far will I get this time" question, particularly over some classic bit of history. There are several of those floating around the livingroom or bedroom here.

The problem is, Dover Publications makes stuff like Vitruvius or Theophilus "On Divers Arts" so temptingly cheep.

On the other hand, they'll also sell you Twelve William Morris Bookmarks for only $1.50, so you could certainly keep a lot of books going at the same time....
