One, just one book in my workspace…at least officially. Sometimes I keep a monster sized book smoldering in the background. I read it a few pages at a time until I am sure I want to invest myself completely. Its no different than sticking your toe into the bathtub, or the sea, to gauge the temperature.
However, this book’s temperature (about an imprisoned Iranian journalist) is just fine…but as the Iranian Revolution becomes more inflamed, this book’s story starts to smolder.
