My First Post

This is my first attempt at writing this blog. I was inspired by reading other people’s blogs – in particular Sandra at Bookworld, Danielle at A World in Progress and many others.

Danielle yesterday was asking what to do when you are feeling ho hum about a book you are reading? Finish it anyway? Or do you bail? In particular Hilary Mantel’s Beyond Black. Well, I read this in May and felt much the same – it got quite dreary in parts! I did finish it because I wanted to know how it ended and whether it got better – it didn’t.

Generally, I don’t finish a book if I can’t get into it as I decided some years ago that I’m never going to read all the books I’d like to anyway so why carry on with one that’s boring, or badly written.
