I read it all

Every so often, I think of a story from Stephen King’s book On Writing. At one point in the book, he talks about his former drinking problem. If I remember rightly, he mentions a friend of his, who had gone to see a counsellor about his drinking.

“Well, how much do you drink?” asked the counsellor. The man stared at him.

“What are you talking about?” he said. “I drink it all.”

Well, apparently Mr. King also, in his addicted years, drank it all. And sometimes, when I’m tracking down the thirteenth book by an author I’ve come to love, or I’m systematically reading five years’ worth of blog archives, I think, “What are you talking about? I read them all.”
