The purpose of the project is to instill some discipline into my reading habits. You see, I've gotten a little lazy lately, in part because it's just so easy to toss a book aside in favour of something more appealing. Working in a library isn't always a good thing!
I have gotten off to a shaky start. I decided my second book from the list would be 'Small island' by Andrea Levy. I'm not enjoying it.
I've already renewed it from the library once. I've barely cracked the first third of the book. I'm hoping it ends up being worth the effort it is costing me so far, but I don't think it will. I don't like two of the three main characters. At all. How can I bring myself to care what happens to them when they don't appeal to me in the smallest measure?
Are you able to get into a book with unsympathetic characters?
But I shall not give up. I will persevere and get this Small island thing finished. I will overcome my impulse to give up on it. Like broccoli, I am sure it will be good for me, though I don't appreciate it in the moment.
