Who knew that pregnancy and hours spent breastfeeding would so lend themselves to reading lots of books?

While I didn’t get to read everything that has been on my reading list this year, I have put a nice little dent in it. And in the time since The Child was born, I’ve also read her countless stories, but I haven’t bothered to keep track of those.
