I'm reading a good biography: Leonardo da Vinci (Walter Isaacson).
Heavy, comprehensive treatment of Leonardo's life and ideas. Book utilizes a lot of Leonardo's sketches & paintings. 500+ pages total, I'm currently about a quarter thru it..

Way too many. I know I should stop starting books while I’m still reading other ones but I can’t help myself! The ones I’m mainly reading are Jane Eyre, a bio on Beethoven, and Nausea by Sartre

I've always been an avid reader but anxiety has taken a toll on that as well, in the sense that when it's bad I go for silly, light books that I would have never given a second glance to years ago. They do provide a bit of distraction, so they're helpful in that way, but I miss my favorite genres.

I'm currently reading a non-fiction book about dog language.
