Booking Through Thursday — Is there a book you wish you could unread? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it?
Well, I would have to say “no” to this question. In the first place, if I don’t like a book in the first page or so, it never gets any further than that. I am not the sort that can just sit down and read anything, I have to like it.
There are, however, a few books that start out slow but I keep on going and, at the end of the day, they usually turn out to be can’t-put-them-down-page-turners. I do believe in giving a book a chance so in order for me to give it up on the first page, it has to be something that I am really not interested in or just doesn’t grab me at all.
There are a few books that I like, that I WANT to like but find getting through them similar to walking through quicksand. “London” would be one of these books. I enjoy it while I am reading it but it seems like it just takes forever to read a page. “London” is taking a sabbatical right now — I will get back to it.
I have never, however, read a book that I wish I hadn’t read.
