I haven’t written much at all this year. I go through seasons where I need to listen more than I speak and read more than I write. While I haven’t been writing much, I have been reading more than ever. I have never been one to breeze through a novel in a couple of days. I envy those “speed readers.” But at my own pace and leisure, the number of books on my list has grown significantly over the last few years. I’ve already read more books this year than I did over the total course of last year.

Here are the voices to which I’ve been listening. Here are the lives I’ve been living. Here are the conversations into which I have entered.
