INSPIRATION

So Many Books, So Little Time by Sara Nelson
Sara Nelson is the go-to woman on reading and publishing; when I read this book she was the editor of Publishers Weekly magazine, and she has since moved on to various posts including book editing for Oprah Magazine. Her book is about what happens when you set the intention of reading a huge stack of books, and how life takes you different ways.

Nick Hornby, The Polysyllabic Spree and his Believer column
In this column he would chronicle what he bought vs what he actually read. Great writer, fun column.
