I think back in my uni days I used to read maybe one or two books at a time. Now it's more like 20 or 30. This contributes to my usual sense of overwhelmedness.
I had the aforementioned meeting with supervisor today. He seems quite pleased with progress on the thesis. That's a real relief, and I feel like things are all go from here. I'm in quite a good groove study-wise.
Nonetheless I'm forever finding more books to read. Even to get well-grounded in Patristics takes a lot of reading. I wanted to start reading through issues of JECS, but our library has moved to an electronic subscription, and then has failed to implement it properly, so I can't access it!
Train rides are a real blessing in disguise. Assuming I get a seat I have a good chance to read some scripture (in multiple languages), memorise some verses, pray, and now I'm doing a little Commenius and Kendrick reading. Anything and everything to improve those languages!
