I’ve been tagged. Via Stephen Anderson’s Poetpainter:

If you’re like me, you may have several books you’re reading at once. Or maybe not reading, but referencing and scanning. Either way, these are the books piled up on your desk or beside your bed or [wherever else you stack books]. These are the 5 or 6 books that you are ‘in the middle of’.

Oh boy, it’s meme #2! I vowed to not participate in every meme that got pitched my way but this one has to do with books and the potential for snickering and pointing (“Look at that guy, what a plebian!”) is far too enticing to pass up. Additionally, I am surely the last person to do this thing, which makes it so uncool that there’s no way I can resist. Thanks, Aaron. ;) Here we go.
