    This Month's Read: WHY TIME FLIES, by Alan Burdick

    This book is “a close investigation of the clock that’s running inside all of us…In a humorous and thoughtful way, Alan Burdick tries to convey to the readers why we perceive time the way we do. "Time" is the most commonly used noun in the English language; it's always on our minds and it advances through every living moment. But what is time, exactly? Do children experience it the same way adults do? Why does it seem to slow down when we're bored and speed by as we get older? How and why does time fly? In this witty and meditative exploration, award-winning author and New Yorker staff writer Alan Burdick takes readers on a personal quest to understand how time gets in us and why we perceive it the way we do.”
