Right now, I have sitting beside me a brand new stack of student papers that I need to grade as quickly as possible (see the above design of my course for the reason). I have spent the last six days in a row grading another set of student papers, and I will be doing the same this week, next week, the week after that, and so on until the the course ends.
Sitting on my other side is a copy of this book. I have never read this book, which is why I purchased a copy of it. Given my work schedule, it is unlikely that I will read this book anytime soon. However, I really do want to read this book sometime soon--like right now, for instance.
What do I do? Do I grade? Do I not grade?
