Some of us never catch up on our reading no matter how hard we try over the span of almost 60 years.  Take me, for instance.  I am woefully under read in the classics of a sport I have enjoyed most of my life–baseball.  Thus, I am newly armed with a stack of books about baseball: Veeck–as in Wreck, Bill Veeck, with Ed Linn, Ball Four, Jim Bouton, The Long Season, Jim Brosnan, The Boys of Summer, Roger Kahn, and The Summer Game, Roger Angell.  I will also reread The Image of Their Greatness, Ritter and Honig, and The Glory of Their Times, Ritter, just because they satisfy immensely with each reading.

I’d like to think that our reading interest at any one particular time is one of our personae.
