Why I'm a Publisher's Worst Nightmare

I was at a B&N yesterday browsing around and I found a book in the scifi section that looked pretty darn good. I almost bought it, but then I thought, "hey, if I buy this book, I might really enjoy it and spend the next week doing this instead of my work." So I put it back on the shelf.

I got around that problem when I was working full time and in school full time by always having a book that Dan and I read together.

Okay, technically I read and he listened, but it was a nice way to end our day together and it kept me reading things that weren't assigned, even if it was only 6-10 pages per day.

If you and your wife don't have wildly disparate sleep schedules or reading tastes, it may be an option.

I read it in B&N. (I read very fast.)

That is a publisher's worse nightmare!

Oh, and I could never read slow enough to read with my turtlely hubby.

When I see a book I think I'd like, I buy it and put it on a "to read later" shelf. Some books I read three years later, some I still haven't gotten to. But, they are always there when I do find some down time or have need of a book.
