I can tell how much busier we've been lately, in that I haven't been finishing as many books so far this year. I've even been forced to return two books to the library because I wasn't allowed to renew them any more. A Richard Brautigan collection, and a book called Daemon; in the first case, I hadn't even cracked the book yet, while the second, I'd only gotten to page six of 432. Sadness. I'll reorder them when I've cleared a few more books from the queue.
