I was gonna write a book review today about a non-knitting book that I started two or three weeks ago, but it kinda got stalled, and I'm just not reading at all. The book is written by a good writer, one I have read two other books by and loved, they're full of very intricate plots, very detailed characters, and lots of little intricacies, but I just don't like reading this one, it seems. They are also very long, and a little slow to start, and I have only read about 7% of the book so far (in three weeks). I hesitate to tell you what book it is, because the author is so good, and it is all my own fault that I am not reading.
This is like knitting something and getting stuck in the middle of knitting it. When I get stuck in the middle of something now, whether it's a thing I'm knitting or a book I'm reading, I just stop. I can't seem to go forward until I either make the decision to just abandon it or go forward with it. Luckily, with my knitting, I only knit what I want to now, so that's ok. With my reading, well, I have only outright abandoned two books in the last three years, and one of them I still want to try and read.
I should declare a Reading Day and just read! I need to get over it. I'm whining, and I really hate that.
