My list of books to read has been growing at an alarming rate. It seems I keep adding more to the pile without knocking any of them out. I have my various reasons and excuses… Being tired, working late, watching tv, aimlessly browsing the internet… You know, the usual excuses that we make to validate short-term instant-gratification entertainment. Then again, I supposed I have some more valid excuses as well. Since Lauren and I opened the coffee shop, it’s been difficult to find the time to sit down and read novels, listen to records, and watch movies. They aren’t kidding when people say that your business will be your life for the first five years. I mean, we’re just now approaching our second year and I’m just now getting to the point that I can dust off some of these paperbacks and feed the grey matter. These days we’re both making a valiant effort to work in more personal time. After all, it’s good to incorporate some play with all of that work… Even if you have one of the coolest jobs on the planet.
Anyway, I’m pretty stoked to start on the new additions to the Dune universe! I’m starting with Hunters of Dune. I’m about 100 pages in and can already feel my imagination muscles flexing.
