A while ago I decided I was going to start my very first book club. I was so excited. I had been on a real tear lately with my reading and jumped right in with both feet. I posted a blog about it, put it on my facebook page, bought the book. Everything was going well! That is, until I started reading the book.

I couldn’t get into it. I have read about 20% and I have no desire to finish. I’m genuinely surprised because I love the author, but I just can’t get into this story. Now what? I had to make a choice. I could either 1. power thru, or 2. quit.

Even the thought of quitting something gives me anxiety. I am not the kind of person to throw in the towel. But, the more I thought about it, I realized that I said it was a ‘NO OBLIGATION’ book club. Shouldn’t that apply to me too? Why should I feel guilted into finishing?

 

 

 

So, I quit. I am moving on.

If anyone cares or is interested, I am going to read ‘A Marriage Plot’ next. If anyone has suggestions for the next book, I am listening….

I kind of want to read “Blood, Bones, and Butter. The Inadvertant Education of a Reluctant Chef”
