on reading

so a book was recommended to me. let's call it....gilead.

and i've been reading, and reading...it's very slow, and as it turns out, i have given up. i can't remember the last time i STARTED reading a book and did not FINISH it. which of course led me to wonder, what book did you start and not finish? why?

i know this book is a good book, obviously many others enjoyed it. for some reason, it just wasn't my cup of tea. i couldn't get into it. but i burned through a couple of others quickly enough afterwards.

p.s. -- have i told you all i'm on goodreads.com? if you read, i recommend getting on there. i've found lots of recommendations, and more importantly, it keeps track of what i've read and how i liked it. for some reason i can't do that on my own anymore. if you're on goodreads, let me know and be my friend!

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparkes. I loved the movie, but the book was....crap. I was so dissapointed!

I will have to check out goodreads though. Sounds...(for lack of a better word) good.

Hey, I'm on Goodreads, too! I couldn't find you, though. What are you under? We should friend each other. :-) As for my recently-abandoned books, I have only to look at my abandoned books shelf on Goodreads to know that the ones I've most recently given up on were Evil Genius by Catherine Jinks, The Jewels of Tessa Kent by Judith Krantz, and Tracks by Robyn Davidson. I used to insist upon finishing every book, but there are so many out there that I want to read that I have to be compelled to finish one that I am totally uninterested in. Of course, if I bought the book instead of borrowing it from the library, that usually does the trick.
