3 days in Pocatello? YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!

The Nickel-Plated JA

Are they taping segments? If so, who are they interviewing? Unfortunately, right now Idaho is a bit thin on homegrown political/public affairs books....

Or is this *nothing* like the "Road to the White House" bus tour?

The Nickel-Plated JA

Of course, that book density may change a bit in the near future...?

Jasper LiCalzi, who started teaching at Albertson shortly after I graduated, has been supplying some handy pull-quotes for the AP over the last 24 hours (about a political story explicitly beyond the scope of this site).

The Nickel-Plated JA

Wow. I need to focus more tightly. What I *meant* to imply by that last comment is that maybe now he'll (rightfully!) start getting hounded by some acquisitions editors *grin*.

Enjoy, Tara!!

I forgot to ask in my post: A recent news story showed that about 25% of Americans read no books at all last year. RSR readers: How many books would you say you read in a given year?

I am in the 10-12 range. Unfortunately, I do waaaaay too much of my reading online and in magazines and not enough via books.

NPJA, I am not sure what the Book TV bus does when it comes to town. I know they tend to hit literary festivals, but beyond that ...

Yes, it'll be interesting to see if the breaking news slips into whatever coverage happens, if any.

Oh boy, how many books do I read a year? At least one a week so that puts me safely in the 52 books a year range. That's not a solid number, but it's the best I can come up with.

I was a much more voracious book reader in my youth. The only books I can recall reading in the past year are Richard Dawkin's "The God Delusion" and I'm mostly through Al Gore's "The Assault on Reason."

Like you, I too do most of my reading online these days as well as the occasional magazine.

Tara, I am afraid we have to disqualify you. :)

David Erin Anthony

With full time school and full time work reading is a luxury I do not enjoy for recreation. I usually am limited to the down time between sessions. I average about 4 to 5 books during these breaks.

Tara Rowe

I can't be disqualified! ;) David, I'm a full time student, get paid for 20 hours of work a week on cataloging the Stallings collection though average at least 40 hours a week on them, and have a night job. Reading has to be a priority and I agree, too often people forget to read.

David Erin Anthony

Please forvie Tara...my comments were not meant in a offensive manner. I was agreeing and only wished I could read more. I am saddened when I hear of people who have little life obligations but spent 4 hours plus every day infront of a television set.

Tara Rowe

Sorry, David. I have been edgy all day--this Craig thing and the first week of classes at ISU have really cut down on my quality sleep time! :) I didn't take your comments offensively, was just over-reacted in my response. I'm with you on the people who spend so much time in front of the television. I'm guilty of it from time to time (mostly when I am reaching burn out on all my projects) and afterward I kick myself for not picking up a good book.

Julie in Boise

Tara, I was joking about disqualifying you! I have to say I am envious of your time to read. When I retire in 20 years or so, I hope to read a book a week, too - assuming we still have books. :)

TypePad has been a bit squirrelly with the comments this week. My apologies to anyone who has had trouble posting a comment (or who has seen comments posted multiple times). I've had many messages that my email address is invalid. Go figure.
