I need a reading vacation

Right at this moment, I have no less than 9 books in the to-be-read pile on my nightstand. Two of these are borrowed and have to butt to the front of the line. At least two of these I bought back in the spring and keep getting pushed to the back of the line. And at least two books I am re-reading to learn from, studying the text. And then there are the books in the mail, soon to join the pile.

The problem is I don't have time to read any of them. I'll get as far as paragraph, if I'm lucky a whole page, before I fall asleep. I need to learn to give up sleeping to keep up with my reading addiction.

I think I need a vacation, the kind where I can just read all day for days straight until I run out of books.

At the rate books are published these days, I guess that wouldn't be a vacation. It would be retirement.
