A number of my friends have been doing a “50 books in a year” challenge, wherein they try to make time to read 50 books over the course of a calendar year. Not surprisingly, this month they have all been posting their results for the past year.
For all of my life I’ve been an avid reader of science fiction/fantasy books, and whilst I didn’t keep a list, if anyone had told me that I would be limited to reading *only* 50 books in a year, I’d have been traumatized. However, when I started my PhD project I suspected that I’d have to cut back on my reading of fiction in order to make more time for my research. Therefore I started keeping a list of what I read, and how long it took me to read it. The first full year of my PhD project, I read 61 fiction books, and I am quite certain that is less than had been normal for me. The second full year of my PhD project I also read 61 fiction books. The third year I managed only 46, and now that I’m ticking away on the fourth (unfunded) year, I’ve managed 15 fiction books so far, which means that if my rate of reading remains unchanged for the rest of the time period (and I were so unfortunate as to stretch the degree out to four full years, instead of the anticipated 3.75), I would read only 21 fiction books over the course of the year.
How is this possible? How can an avid reader cut so far back on their literary intake and maintain their sanity? The answer is that I’m still reading. I’m just not making much time to read fiction. Some of my reading takes the form of following blogs/livejournal/facebook/myspace to keep track of the doings of old friends, new friends, and friends I’ve not yet met. This tends to be done in short 5-30 minute breaks from working, while I’m sitting at the computer. However, by far most of my reading has been geologic literature. Switching my count from “years enrolled in a PhD Project” to “calendar year” (I started in June of 2005, so my years are about six months out) I have read two geology text books cover to cover (Spear, 1993 Metamorphic phase equilibria and pressure-temperature-time paths, and Spry, 1969 Metamorphic Textures) and 73 abstracts of papers which I either put onto the “to read” list, or, in some cases, decided I didn’t need to read, and 141 papers read in full (or, in a few cases, read closely in part, and skimmed the rest). Here follows the list of the papers I read in full between 1 Jan and 31 Dec 2008. It is an interesting mix of topics, not all of which relate directly to my own research:
