I must shamefully admit to reading less and less lately.
I used to be such a voracious reader, and now, I have to force myself to even read an article in the newspaper.
I don’t read blogs very much either. I guess I have just become reading-lazy!
For Christmas, I was offered a bunch of books that were on my Amazon WishList. Therefore books that I had noticed and marked and was interested in. I haven’t even read the first of the murder mysteries I was interested in. Pure sloth on my part.
On my list was also World Without End.
Now if you’ve read The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, a huge and heavy but fascinating book, this is a sequel.
World Without End
Mind you, I haven’t read it yet and am wondering if I ever will!
As Nonie Vogue, one of my flickr contacts put it
A book that size has no beginning as far as I’m concerned. I would never start to read one that size
The book has and weighs 632g! That’s over a pound!
Another book I had added to my list was Elizabeth George’s Careless in Red, has humongous typesetting and weighs over a kilo. I have been an Elizabeth George fan for years, but honestly, I can’t even lift the thing.
I haven’t opened either of the books and wonder if I ever will.
Maybe I would if I had some sort of a lectern like the ones they have in churches to support the Holy Bible, or prayer books

Well, meanwhile, I just can’t see myself schlepping those books to read during a train or plane trip. So I guess they’ll have to remain on my bookshelf until I get either stronger, or more motivated!
