I definitely buy more books than I read… I think we have high hopes for more books than we can possibly read. It’s like phone numbers. I have phone numbers for people I had some interaction with once three years ago still in my phone but I don’t delete them. It’s hope. We want to maintain friendships with more people than we can possibly find time to interact with on a regular basis. It’s the same with books.

How high can you jump?
I don’t know.
Why are you so negative right now?
I’m negative because I don’t know how high I can jump?
You’re negative because look at your face.
I’m sick of my face.

When I was a kid I loved movies, but if I didn’t finish a movie in one sitting, I’d just start it over again, and maybe I never made it all the way to the end. I liked the exposition. I like watching the story get set up and complicated, but I hated when the story got resolved.
