About meRetired librarian, but seem to be busier than ever. Plus the problem of "So Many Books, So Little Time" -- anyone got any good tips as to how to balance reading time among: (1) newspapers (2) magazines (3) books --(a) fiction (b) non-fiction ?

About my libraryThis listing includes all books currently OWNED; plus all those READ since joining LT Oct.'07 - (borrowed, or later discarded). All are finally tagged (however roughly). The "collections" section [recently discovered] is not nearly finished. I do enjoy fiction, but with all the exciting things happening and being discovered in the world - my reading is heavily on the side of non-fiction. Especially psychology, brain-research, spirituality, & biography.
Books I've read have been rated. Except for the older books, those with no stars are, alas, on the many tbr shelves.
