Because reading is hot.

Abandon Shit!

Confession: Super Mon cannot get into Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. I keep trying! And, it’s not that it’s not interesting– I even like the prose-y style. It’s just DEPRESSING as all hell. I am not usually the type of reader who requires an upbeat story, or even an upbeat ending, but I am not feeling it for some reason. I read all these great reviews on it, we had a belabored, yet democratic, voting process, and it fits in our non-fiction category. But, every time I pick it up, I think about reading or doing something else. I don’t really want to analyze myself to death on this. We all know, as readers, if you’re not feeling it, it’s not going to happen.

I have options to offer: 1) You all go ahead and read the book and I will clean my bathtub as punishment and you will convince me that I should reconsider it with your praise of the book and astute observations about my general malaise. 2): Abandon all hope. Is anyone else in favor of abandoning this book for our Decmeber 5 meeting? If so, how many of you are with me? As a fall back, we could bring one book that we really, really love, and or a book that made us laugh to the meeting and talk about it.?!! (sheepishly shrugging shoulders)

I would be so relieved if you agreed with my betrayal–I am just not into this book right now!

  1. DUMP IT!

  2. Also, this post should’ve been titled “Abandon Shit.”

  3. True. I will revise.

  4. I don’t care. Now I’ll never read it. To the bookshelf!

    I have not yet started it. It’s next on my list. but since 3 of the hotties have abandoned it, I am have no problem with this. I’ll try it sometime.

  6. i hadn’t even started…but i have no problem taking the hotties advice…so many books and so little time…agreed! abandon shit!!!

  7. I’ll probably give it a whirl (just because I’m kind of goofy like that), but probably not by Dec 5. šŸ˜‰

  8. All- give it a shot. I started reading it on the plane last night. I was trapped in the “limited recline” seat in the back of the plane. I had nowhere to go. I had to face the book. It took until about page 48 until I became invested in the characters. I believe I will be sticking with it.
