Old Book, New Book

Yesterday I finished A Ship Made of Paper. I don't recommend it. I don't know why I finished it. I didnt' like it. And I didn't much enjoy it. Except it was on my To Be Read list (which now has 535 books on it - I will NEVER finish LOL) and I am trying to make that list smaller. I started it over a month ago I think. Put it down and didn't have any desire to finish it. But then I feel guilty for not finishing it, so I picked it up yesterday and told myself I would not read any other book until it was done! Other people have liked it though, so don't take my word for it. Read some reviews and then decide if you'll like it. I just, eh, it wasn't a book for me!

Then last night I picked up Affluenza and started to read (mostly because Crunchy Chicken has been talking about it - actually doing a book club about it - and I wanted to read it based on what she was talking about!). Yeah, I'm hooked on it. I'm sure I will probably fly through it and read it quickly because it has sucked me in. I highly recommend you pick it up and read it and then hey, maybe discuss the book? She just posted questions today for chapters 19-21. I'm only on chapter 9 though, so I have a bit of reading to catch up ... but it's really good and if you pick it up, let m eknow what you think! =)

  2. I'm stubborn that way, too: if I've started a book I'll finish it, even if I'm really not enjoying it. Only lately have I given myself permission to just stop reading, but I can feel the book on the shelf, silently nagging me to pick it back up.
