    Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy

    I've been 48% into the book since 2019

    Beloved by Toni Morrison

    Just got busy and never picked it up again

    The spy who came in from the Cold by John Le Carré

    Might end up finishing (i'm at 50%) but s*** is currently boring my socks off, even though it's short.

    what do you think of it so far?

    I was about a third into it and I actually liked what I read, but like you, I just got busy with other stuff and never got back into it.

  • Jumbie bird by Ismith Khan

    Siddartha by Herman Hesse

    Jonathan Livingstone Seagull by 70's author whose name I forgot

    this was so melodramatic at times, couldn't really get it after 200 pages

  • damn y'all giving up on some classics. all good tho and I think it's better to admit a book isn't for you than forcing yourself to continue because others rave about it

    but I almost gave up on Beloved and am glad I stuck with it because the second half was much better. keep at it if you remember enough @Beach_kneega @venus

    been trying to get better at giving up books that don't grab me much. didn't finish:

    Piranesi by Susanna Clarke
    The Night Watchman by Louise Edrich
    The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt (hated this one)
    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
    Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
    The Electric Kool Aid Test by Tom Wolfe
    Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins
    One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez (would like to revisit this one)

    I'm waiting my retirement to take this from the bookshelf. It will be the first thing I do, I promised myself.

    Brothers Karamazov, it’s a good book and a great look into late 19th century Russian life, but incredibly dense. Hard to read for more than 30 minutes a time
