You can tell a lot about a person by the stack of books beside their bed.   My husband likes the deep dive, so instead of reading one book on the Chinese cultural revolution, he’ll have 4.  By the end of his self-directed jag, he’s conversant.   My pile on the other hand reveals that I have attention deficit disorder.   Right now I’m simultaneously engrossed in The Hare with the Amber Eyes, Websites for Dummies, Cleopatra,  1001 Questions Answered About Birds and a Vocabulary Study Guide.

Don’t fence me in.
