I used to spend ages carefully picking a range of different books off my bookshelf in the hope of inspiring myself to actually follow a plan of books for the month.

Obviously that didn’t work for me, since I pick everything on a whim and change my mind hundreds of time before I decide to stick with it.

So, I’ve decided not to bother anymore, and just to share the books I’m currently reading. Yeah, I’m one of THOSE people. The kind that read four books at once.

That’s how much I love it. Definitely give this one, and the entire album a listen. Also if you’re interested here’s a pretty cool article about Father John Misty himself.
