How not to read

Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.
— Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote)

Part of my summer reading

Working 60 hours each week demolished my summer reading plans. So I’ve embarked on a sort of experiment to schedule more reading into each day. The results? Not always pretty.

When and where I should NOT read (lessons learned the hard way):

1. in the bathtub. Splish-splash, and… Hemingway’s taking a bath

2. during meals involving spaghetti

3. while baking anything, but especially while baking chocolate chip cookies

4. while, um, driving. . . I really don’t care to get too close to the Carolina By-Products truck in the next lane

5. The Inferno, right before going to bed. . . it does strange things to one’s mind
