Ordinarily I don't read five things at once, but the first two books are huge, and because I can't take them on the train, I read them in the morning at home. Drums and the magazines I take on the train. Guernsey is for before bed. I'm also not giving myself a week to read them. No way Obama is reading all that stuff in a week and playing golf.
By the way, Drums is really good. Actually, they're all kind of great.
