Libraries, Fall Bike Rides, Books

Deposite de les Agues, 10-13-09 Pompeu Fabra, 10-14-09

Both Juanjo and I have been working a lot this week, him working late coding and making phone calls to California, and me spending time in the library and at my desk at home. These are another couple pictures from the library in Barcelona where I’ve been spending my time, at the Pompeu Fabra University. Yesterday after lunch I biked to campus, then Juanjo took a run and met me and we biked home together. Barcelona’s a really great city for biking, the weather is nice, and there are a lot of bike lanes. (Another post soon about the city-wide bike loan system, it’s really neat!)

Time to start my workday now, but I leave you with two questions: What are you reading right now? And how many books a year do you think you read? I read a New York Times article this morning about a lady that has read a book a day for nearly a year (and written reviews about them on her blog). It got me thinking about how I read less than I used to, and how I’d like to read more. I’m currently reading a Spanish novel called “La Mano de Fatima”, and I probably read about 50-60 books a year, not counting professional reading (have never really kept track). What about you?
