Reading Resolutions

Wonderful piece, Henry, expressing my dilemmas almost precisely with much the same conclusions. Except, since we live mostly on the road, almost all my reading these days takes place using a Kindle app on an iPod. My hands just won't accomodate many books, which have become too heavy for me..... - Ted

I love Master and Margarita (Bulgakov) and Before the Fall (Hawley).

Recently I read (The Lovin' Spoonful's) Steve Boone's autobiography "Hotter Than A Matchhead". I wondered what your reaction to it was.....thanks....keep up the great writing!!

also FYI there's a John Sebastian interview you may find interesting in the Ugly Things issue before this new one that just came out......

time for a Sebastian bio.....

Some very useful advice there, thanks Henry. Quite agree about books per year although few could match 300. What a great job you have, and do.

All the best for 2017.

That's a lot of reading Henry...I appreciate you distilling it down for the rest of us...I probably have 7-8 books that I haven't read yet based on your recommends that are awaiting...can't imagine staring down 300 volumes...
