fashionable

my favorite paragraph of the day...

From an email I wrote to a friend -

"I don't read books as often as I used to. It's not that I don't like reading books anymore, but that my ritual for purely enjoyment-oriented reading ended. I used to read books in the bathtub, but the last few bathtubs I've had access to just weren't suitable. They were either too small or not deep enough or the hot water would run out before the end of the chapter. Perhaps when I get a hot tub, this will change... in which case I can expect to get many more books soggy again."
