I, too, am in no hurry.
In any case, working with words / thoughts / ideas / books / the written word occupies a LOT of my daily life. So it's nothing for me to slowly work through a bunch of books over time -- all going at once.
By the way, Catfish, I'm sorry for not having responded to your email request. I wanted to provide a kind of mini biography, but that was too daunting and it caused me to procrastinate. I'll be in touch by email soon.
