Books at your bedside?
I go to bed with great ambitions to read a lot, despite the fact that I usually fall asleep after a page or two. For this reason, I have a lot of short books, journalism, and essay collections on the pile. I am rereading Maeve’s time, selected by Maeve Binchy irish time the columns, which are so funny; and The Reader by Fran Lebowitz, that I bought after watching the Netflix documentary Pretend it’s a city. I also keep my Kindle next to me for insomnia so I can read in the dark. I tend to only buy books on Kindle that I can’t find in print, so it’s a hodgepodge of academic or out-of-print books.
