When I found myself with time to blog today, I had to go check out what was going on at Friday 5. Don't get there as often as I have in the past, but I always enjoy participating. And this week's entry is so perfect for me! Here is what the host of Friday 5, scrivener, had to say -
"I am a total bookworm, but I’ve mostly avoided indulging that passion of mine in this space. Today, however, I feel the need to be reminded of why I love books and reading, so please share your thoughts on books as you answer these questions."
So...here are my thoughts on some books!
1. What book did you struggle to get through but is something you’re glad you’ve read? - Sometimes reading something worthwhile, can be a struggle...although ideally, not. Seems less worthwhile if it is a chore. Still, I try to push myself sometimes and not be lazy even in my pleasure reading. A few months ago I read The Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. People tend to rave about it and I had been curious for some time. It is one of those books that disappears from libraries, but we finally held on to a copy long enough for me to read it. Let's just say I was underwhelmed. But still glad I can now say I've read it.
Wow. Not sure anyone else will enjoy this little game as much as I did, but I would love to read anyone else's answers in comments or on your own blog. I'd really enjoy that!
Hope you all have a good weekend! Stop in tomorrow for SECRETS and a little birthday post.
