So Many Books, Too Little Time

There are too many interesting-looking new books on offer, and I have too little time to read them all. I'm sure this is a problem familiar to many scholars and avid readers. Just now, for example, I want to read:

Pauline Maier, Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788 (Simon & Schuster 2010)

Edmund Morris, Colonel Roosevelt (Random House 2010)

Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol I. (Univ. of California Press 2010)

Paul D. Halliday, Habeas Corpus: From England to Empire (Harvard 2010)

Mary Warnock, Dishonest to God: On Keeping Religion out of Politics (Continuum 2010)

Howard Jacobson, The Finkler Question (Bloomsbury USA 2010)

Laura Hillenbrand, Unbroken: A World War II Story (Random House 2010)

John Heilbron, Galileo (Oxford 2010)

I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting. It all makes me want to stop writing and just read.
