This weekend I calmly walked into Border's with Mrs. Zenpundit with the intention of buying a new road atlas and I left with copies of Zen & the Way of the Sword
and Islam and the West
...only after forcing myself to put down the Richard Clarke memoir and a book on " great vehicle " Buddhism. This is ridiculous ! I'm still reading the Burleigh book and I have at least ten other books in my " read pile" gathering dust on my nightstand !
As my reading time decreases, my purchases increase. Now I know how Jefferson felt though after surveying the boxes of books piled up in my basement I think his collection was smaller.
