I have a bad habit. I'm a binge reader. When I read, I read way too much. I don't do anything else. I chew up pages all day. I've read a 400 page book in one sitting. Last vacation I took, I read 3000 pages. I have a problem and I admit it.
So I haven't read much over the last year or so. If I did, I'd have never written anything, would never have spent time with my wife, walked my dog, played with my son, petted my cat, or gone to work.
But I need to read. I need it bad. Real bad, man. There are post-apocalyptic classics I need to read, books by my friend Kim Culbertson I need to get to, and I really should re-read The Book of Revaltions. Yes, tell my mother I just said that I need to read the Bible.
What great stuff should I be reading? "Day of the Triffids"? "Omega Man"? I want to read a lot of PA stuff, but also just a lot of stuff. For about a month or so, I'm going off.
And then I promise, once my page-lust has been satisfied, I'll get back to work on "Cathartes Aura on the Road from Nowhere" and some children's books with my wife/illustrator. Perhaps "Super Flying Baby" or "The Zloby and Oli Detective Agency". But until then, I need a hit, I need a dose, I need a Megablast.
I need your help.
