I figured if I was confused, then most of you probably were, too. I’ve mentioned a handful of books lately in only a smattering of posts, but I haven’t really mentioned what I’m actually reading.
I guess it’s because I’m not even sure. I’ve started three books, and I’m faced with only 15 days to read my book club’s next selection, “Outlander,” which I haven’t even started.
I started “Gone With the Wind,” and even encouraged you to follow my “progress.” I was hoping for a triumphant finish, but my “progress” proved laughable. Although I like what I have read of it, I’m going to put it to the side for now.
Several months ago I started “Unashamed” in Francine Rivers’ Lineage of Grace series, and although it’s a book that could be finished in a weekend, I managed to make it only about halfway before abandoning it to start “Gone With the Wind.”
In the meantime, I started “Backyard Giants,” a nonfiction selection, and although I’m still reading on this one, I’ll admit that in the wake of my book blunder, I’ve considered abandoning it so I have plenty of time to get through “Outlander.”
But this must stop. It’s driving me crazy. I need closure, people. These are not my usual reading habits, and I have all these half stories running through my head. (Imagine me screaming into a pillow right now.)
So for the record, I’m now reading “Backyard Giants.” I’ll let you know if I pick up “Outlander.”
Thanks for letting me vent.
