Way back in August of 2010,
I listed the
Now I'd like to make a list of
books everyone has strongly recommended,
but which, honestly, do not appeal to me.
Book: East of Eden
Why? Couldn't get into the characters.
Why? Too much detail.
Book: Infinite Jest
Why? Too quirky.
Why? Couldn't get into the story.
Book: War and Peace
Why? Too many characters.
Book: Moby Dick
Why? Too much plot and too few characters.
Why? Takes too much concentration to get through a paragraph.
Why? Can't get past the subject matter.
How about you?
Are there books you've been told you should read,
yet you think you probably never will read?
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
