Despite being sick this weekend, I have already read 7 books this year. Feels like a good start.

@phildini Reading while ill is at least a compensation for the feeling awful part - a good work of fiction makes me forget my misery.

(I don't read as much as I used to - a lot of that time is now devoted to handcraft/study/art, but my own individual pleasure is recently picking up a book under the bed, reading a couple chapters of _Tale of the Heike_ before sleep.)
