One of the amusements of idleness is reading without the fatigue of attention,
and the world, therefore, swarms with writers whose wish
is not to be studied but to be read.
Would you choose a plate of salad over a bowl of ice cream?
Last year I decided I needed to add more nonfiction to my ever-growing stack of books and after reviewing last year's reading list, I realized the books that affected me most profoundly were nonfiction. For that reason alone, I intend to hang in there and try to read 1 nonfiction for every 5 fiction books, or maybe 1 for every 10, or 15.
