Looks like you like to read several books at a time. I do too. But in this challenge I'm aiming to just finish 1 book. I'm trying really hard not to peek in other books around me. (I know they're calling! ;)

Your haiku is good...it makes me want to read the book.

Your strategy of having several books to dip into is a sound one.

Wow, I'm amazed you're awake enough to write a haiku, and such a good one at that. Happy reading for the remaining hours!
