A Trip Into the Inner Sanctum
When Gregory K suggested at the end of August that people take pictures of their To Be Read Piles and send them to him, I knew it was time to confront the beast in my office. So. In case you are curious. Here is where A Fuse #8 Production is written each and every day.
And here, behind the red chair, is a portion of the To Be Read shelving.
Now just those bottom shelves are the To Be Read portion. THESE shelves are the To Be Reviewed pile.
Needless to say, I don’t anticipate them getting done any time soon. Even better? The incredibly messy pile of books that I’d like to get to sooner rather than later.
The truth is rarely pretty, folks.
