What I'm reading Wednesday...


The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.  Not enjoying this one at all.  I'm 1/5 into it, and I have just completely depressed myself by going to Amazon and reading some of the 1, 2, and 3-star reviews.  Yes, I know there are hundreds and hundreds more of the higher-starred reviews, but when I'm having issues with a book, I always read the lower starred reviews to hear from like-minded readers as to whether it may be redeemable for me.  The scariest review was a 3-star, which said she loved it through the first half, and then it got really awful.  Ha!  I don't even much like the first part, will I make it through?  It's one of my challenge books, so I'm going to try to hang in there for awhile at least.

  2. 10 years ago, I'd have forced myself to finish it. These days, probably not. Life's too short!
