David I would bet that most of us on this website have stacks of books to be read .  I would think it comes with the territory!!!!!

There use to be a cartoon series that ran in the Los Angeles Times about 25 years ago.  It was a single panel labeled alway FEAR OF NOTHING TO READ.  The cartoon I remember best was the soldier in a foxhole totally catatonic with everything going on all around him outside the hole.  The title was always the same Fear of nothing to read.  I use to cut them out and share them with my principal.  He was and is a reader as am I .  I have always had that fear of nothing to read.  My car has a book bag in it with books and Civil War Magazines incase I get somewhere and have to wait.  I always have something to read. 

Today it was an article on Robert Lowell.  I never realized Billy Budd was based on an inccident in his career .
