I like this quote, also from The Polysyllabic Spree (a collection of 14 months of his essays from The Believer Magazine).

"Being a reader is sort of like being president, except reading involves fewer state dinners, usually. You have this agenda you want to get through, but you get distracted by life events, e.g., books arriving in the mail/ World War III, and you are temporarily deflected from your chosen path."
