What I will be reading next has yet to be decided. am considering The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, but then again I have Christina Schwarz’s The Edge of the Earth checked out from the library. In other words I have no idea. Any suggestions?
I read zero books this week. The week prior, I finished The Dinner by Herman Koch although I loved it I did not get around to posting its review until this past Wednesday. Why? Because sometimes (at least for me) I need to chew on a novel for a while and digest my thoughts before putting my words to type. I want to form the words just so and give the book the exemplary (I hope) review said book deserves.
Okay, so I read a book last week why am I reporting on nothing? I am reporting on nothing because all week I have been hung-up on Truth in Advertising by John Kenney.
Truth in Advertising is a fictional account of a sad lonely man assigned to a diapers commercial over the Christmas holidays. It is long winded, disjointed with a hectic attempted at witty writing. I hate giving up on books and have had to force myself to pick it up each night making reading a chore. That was when this stubborn lady decided it was time to throw in the towel. I’ll be writing a DNF post later this week.
