  1. 20 books in 2 months – you keep up quite that steady pace; or do you speed-read?

  2. Gpcox: Yes, I carry a book with me, everywhere. I read 2-3 books a week, sometimes 4. I have the time, being retired.

  3. I notice you have The Goddess od Small Victories on here twice. Was it for any particular reason?
