    Today is the 2nd busiest day of the year at work.

    So along with all that Jaybird said, there will also be lots of lying in bed recuperating going on.

    I have many books I want to read! I crossed the 300 mark for the year yesterday o.O. So much more time to read when I’m not in school.Report

      Damn, 300 is impressive.Report

        From ages 12-20 or so, I usually read about 20-30 books a week. Many of them adult, serious works of nonfiction and heavier literary fiction (ie probably not much different a mix than what I read today).

        So no matter how many books I read during a year as a grown-up, it never seems like NEARLY as many as I would’ve liked to have read.

        Though the first year I started counting – the year after I got married – I only read 19. And the year before that even fewer (which is why I started counting). So I’ve largely reversed the effect that getting married had on my reading habits*, and surely it’s only a matter of time before I’m reading more than a thousand books a year again, right? (I should really link back to one of Jaybird’s “winning the lottery” posts at this point. 😛 )

        *Before living with Jaybird, I spent a LOT less time on such pursuits as video games, television, surfing the internet, and hanging out with people I like without a book in my hands. Also I spent a lot more time walking, sitting on park benches, and drinking hot chocolate very slowly in cafes, all of which I normally do with a book in my hands. It certainly comes out to my advantage, when all is said and done – but I kind of miss being able to read that many books…Report

      Inspired by your example, I decided to track my reading this year as well, and now I don’t understand why I wasn’t doing this all along. I’m about to finish #36.Report

    The end of the year is always busy for me. Some lawyers and insurance adjusters have incentives to close cases in a given calendar year; other cases face holiday-time deadlines imposed by judges to encourage settlements (which usually either fail or produce games of “litigation chicken”).Report

      I thought lawyer break started a week ago?Report

      The public-defender spouse had a case set to pick a jury on the 24th, with opening argument on the 26th. Oddly enough, her client decided to take a deal. (Maybe the prosecutor was a little worried too. He offered a very good deal.)Report

      • Avatar Burt Likko in reply to Francis says:

        I guess that’s a different form of “litigation chicken.” For me, and probably for you, it consists of subpoenas flying and depositions getting noticed on New Year’s Eve and other such bs. (I just recently sent out a flurry of subpoenas myself, but they are for mid-January because I don’t play pool that way.)Report
