My latest book was The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks. Sacks is the doctor whose work was fictionalised in the film Awakenings. Here he discusses neurological case histories from his practice. The case histories are fascinating and in some cases baffling, but the doctor's own humanity comes through in every instance. Some of the scientific discussion was rather beyond me I am afraid but overall this was a very interesting book.
Is it possible to read a book a day, every day? I've finished my year-long project now and I would say that for me, no, it isn't possible to read a whole book EVERY single day. Real life does get in the way, or the book is just too long to complete in the evening after work. However, it looks like it is possible to read an AVERAGE of one book a day for a year, because you can catch up on your reading on weekends and holidays. So in those terms, I kept on track - and I also kept my reading choices eclectic!
