Reading Roundup - Week Six

I'll let you in on a little personal secret.
It's something I must reveal, because when I tell you that I've only finished one book this week, The Magician's Nephew (12), and it is a children's book that is 180 pages long, you'll wonder what my problem is.
Seriously, I wonder the same thing.
I'm not in classes, I am obviously not accomplishing much knitting, so what's the deal?
Well I'll tell you why I always have more than one book going at a time, and why I can't finish any in a timely manner, and perhaps we'll solve this mystery together.
It's because when I put my books down, I just can't find them when I'm looking for them, so I pick up a different book, carry it around, read it, lay it down, and then lose it too.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
It's likely that I would have finished The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but damned if I know where the book is.
So I picked up Tom Holt's You Don't Have to be Evil to Work Here, But It Helps.
Pretty interesting book, picks up the story of J.W. Wells Co. from where it left off when Paul Carpenter took off from the firm.
Anyway, now that I'm all well and good into this new book, I'm sure I'll put it down, and won't be able to find it.
Fortunately I'm reading about four or five books right now, and with another eighteen on my to be read list, so I've got all bases covered.
And have you seen it?
This is what I'm talking about.
I'd love to have one.
Maybe someday...

I don't know if I want a kindle, not that it matters because I couldn't justify the cost. I love the look and feel of books--the cover, the type, the smell of new pages... But it would be great if I traveled.
