And while I've always known this, applying this basic tenet to my life has been a chore.
I'm away for work this week and more importantly away from my personal laptop and night-time internet connection. This means that:
1. I am in bed at a reasonable hour.
2. I have few distractions and read until I sleep.
3. I'm galloping through my books at an alarming rate.
So, the last point is actually not true, but I am reading faster than I would at home.
I sped through Above Suspicion by Lynda La Plante and I'm reading the Caine shortlist story collection for 2011, To See the Mountain and Other Stories right now.
I will try to do reviews of both if I get it together enough.
