I never posted in this thread before, but I usually read 1 book a day, so I am fast reader. I will wait for the library version however, as I thought this morning after reading your description.
We also have that in common. ;-) My ex bought me a mystery novel when we were dating. He saw it sitting on my kitchen counter a few days later and asked if I didn't care for it. I asked what he was talking about and he said that it was still sitting on the counter. I told him that I already finished it the day he gave it to me. You should have seen his eyes.
After we married, I would send him to the library with two milk crates to carry all the books I wanted to read (and could read in three weeks). He would try to sneak in something he was interested in and add "Please read this one too and tell me what it's about." I had to help him get through college too. You would think someone was trying to set him on fire to get him to read a whole book. Ha Ha.
P.S. Edited to add...Fortunately, both our children have my love of reading and learning. It balances out. They also got his smarta$$ genes! ;-)
