Not really, compared to a liberal arts reading load, which tends to consist mostly of book extracts anyway, so it's hard to judge.

Most of the books are skinny little things and I had a lot of time in 30 days without employment...

Now I'm a desk gnome, it's gonna be one novel a week, or something like that.
