2012 Completed Book #5

#5: Mycophilia: Revelations From the Weird World of Mushrooms, by Eugenia Bone

Unfortunately, this will probably be it for awhile, as I have a book to write by May. Which reminds me of this story:

The first book I wrote was Bill Rodgers Lifetime Running Plan. I got behind and had to go into isolation for the last month to get it done. When I finished, I placed a personal ad in the Boston Phoenix to try to get my social life going again. On a first date I said, “Man, is it nice just to go out. I’ve been holed up the last month finishing a book.”

She said, “What were you reading?”

We wound up not getting married.
