I re-read them on an annual basis, starting on September 22, and somehow I
fit them in between being a single parent, a system administrator, a shire
castellan, among other things; they take priority to even the stack of
technical manuals sitting next to my bed, which typically are my
recreational reading (although right now I'm in the middle of _Ivanhoe_
and Jack Vance's _Dying Earth_).

Which brings to mind another thought: how many out there typically ahve 5
or more books going at once?  I'm lucky if I have less than 10!
