As you grow older, you realize you will never get to all of the books you want to read.
So you choose carefully.
At one point, I thought for sure I would read War and Peace, just because of its length. I thought it would be a challenge. But that's not going to happen.

As a music fan, I enjoy biographies. Syd Barrett. Jim Morrison. Kurt Cobain. Tragedies, I guess.
As life becomes even busier, I've found a new way to cherish a story.

Commuting into Boston every day, it's the perfect medium. You can only listen to news, weather and traffic for so long. And with a job in the music industry, I listen to music all day at work.
My current book is "The last Lecture," by Randy Pausch, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2008.
Interesting story. And I never turn a page.
