old diary entry What I Read During The Year 2011

It is 2:04 PM Saturday afternoon in the flow of the eternal Now. We are all going around and around in the Now. Someday the Now will end and we will be the Eternal State. But for now I am sitting here in front of our main computer writing something in my blogs before I passed out from exhaustion.

Today I volunteered at the local library used book store from 10 AM till 1:20 PM.

This morning I got up around 7 o'clock AM. My wife got home from work around 8:45 AM. I told my wife I am on fire inside even though outwardly I looked dead tired. As my wife went to bed she said she was sorry I was on fire. I told her I will just have to suffer.

At the book nook I found one used book to add to my book collection, a book titled "Life" A Memoir by Keith Richards. While at the book nook I wrote in my paper diary and read "Culture Of Complaint: The Fraying Of America" by Robert Hughes. Yesterday I ordered used Robert Hughes memoir titled "Things I Didn't Know".

I thought what I would do this afternoon is list the books I read during the Year 2011. I will see how far I can get listing to the books till I am too wasted.

I did not list the Bible because as a Christian I am always reading the Bible. Also should the Bible be listed with books written by men and women. God wrote the Bible. Well have a blessed New Year. Tomorrow for me will be just another day. I will be alone tonight with my inner fire.
