My Life While My Wife Is In Mexico: Day Four

As I mentioned before, my wife went on a vacation to Mexico with some friends (Hi everybody! My wife told me they are following my posts while they are down there.) and left me home alone. As I also mentioned before, I have not really been taking good advantage of being absolutely free to do whatever I want. Instead, I’ve been reading.

To give you an idea, these are the books I’ve read while she was gone (note: the first I had started before she left):

I am also a little over three hundred pages into:

not set

Mind you, she’s only been gone since about 10pm Friday night. Today is Tuesday, not quite four full days later, and that’s about 1889 pages (minus however many I was already into in The Sportswriter before she left). Obviously, I’m getting a LOT of reading done.

This could actually be a problem. I’ve only got 10 more books on my to read shelf and she isn’t due back until Friday. Mind you, I haven’t run out of books to read in over six years (somehow I always seem to have more books in the queue). Still, a visit to Tattered Cover may be in order if I expect to get through the week.
