Note to Myself # 21

I don't have much trouble
convincing myself of this.
I've always got one or two books
going at a time.

What makes me sad, though,
is that we've lost our Reader-in-Chief.
A President who loved to read
and did it often and could talk with intelligence
about what he'd read, how it fit in with other ideas,
and what was next on his reading agenda.

A President who could write books
without needing a ghost writer.
What a concept!
