The Next Three Books

Though I enjoyed neither, I’m harking back to high-school gym class and baseball to help me manage my to-read list. I distrust myself to commit to any more than three books at a time (I doubt I can even be held to those), but I think this model will help me keep me on track a little better, especially because it includes a fudge factor.

At Bat: What I’m currently reading
On Deck: The very next book to be read
In the Hole: The book after that
Pinch Hitter: The book that jumps in the queue, for some very good reason or other

Current lineup is

At Bat: King Dork by Frank Portman
On Deck: Catcher in the Rye by Salinger
In the Hole: Sense and Sensibility by Austen
Pinch Hitter: Scott Pilgrim, Vol. 3 by Bryan O’Malley
