Somehow I feel like a huge failure this month, mostly because pretty much everything I did read, I read in one day because it was easy. And because I have such a huge pile of books that I need to read but still haven’t had the time for, because school has been so exhausting. I never thought I could be beaten by school, but I think it just bested me. But thankfully it’s slowing down.

It’s good to know, I guess, that not reading enough each day does make me feel like such a loser. I’d say that’s a good neurosis to have. It’ll keep me in check. Also, next month will be much more successful.

edit: I made a list of all of the books I just talked about so that you can easily buy any of them you like at Amazon.
