For some reason I am restless. I usually settle down with a nice book at home and put it down when I am finished with it. Not that I read one book in one sitting. I used to be able to do that. Not any more though as I am now gainfully employed and out of the house for the great part of my waking hours. The rest of which are filled by spending time with the hubby, playing with the kittens and doing household chores.
When I used to take up a book I could not concentrate on anything else. I would read two or three books at the same time but finish them all or else I would feel sick. I have the sneaking suspicion that is what they call compulsive behavior. Still I have the urge to finish a book. No matter how bad I think it is. There’s only ever been one book that I did not finish. It was Peter Hoeg’s “ The History of Danish Dreams”. What a load of s**te it was and I could not force my self to continue reading it. I wonder have you got the same problems? Do you have to finish a book once you started it and which book have you deliberately stopped reading because you thought it was terrible?
Looking for a good read last night I realized that I have started about four or five books or so that I haven’t finished. It always felt like they are lacking something to entertain me. So I am waiting for a book that I can truly enjoy. If you have any suggestions please do let me know. I am kind of desperate at the moment. The last one that really captured me and made me laugh my head off at the same time was Tommy Jaud’s Millionär. A great German novel that was moving and hilarious all the same. Can’t wait to read his other two books.
