Everyone I think that is addicted to reading, or wants to be addicted to reading. Have a few books that seem to defy you.
For me these are books that I really, really, (is it too much to say 3 really?) want to finish but, I keep putting them down and picking them up later.
I am not yet defeated as they are still on my To Be Read list . Sometimes it has been so long since I picked them up that I have to head back a few pages and re-acquaint myself with the characters. This is not failure. This is called being in it for the long haul.
This is also not describing those books where someone might say; Give it up already you will never finish. For any reason 1) not a well written book 2) It’s over your head 3) the fad has passed.
These two books are classics and I am determined to finish them,, one day
Angle of Repose By Wallace Stegner
Atlas Shrugged By Ayn Rand
I finished the The Virtue of Selfishness many years after starting Atlas Shrugged but I am still plugging away in the middle third.
For Mr Stegner, I love his work and it resonates with me. The pictures that he draws with his words but, I did finish Crossing to Safety many moons.
Everyone needs a reading goal and mine is to finish these two books. One day
