I love books. I love words.
I am doing the 30-day book challenge to get some conversations started about books. Please do join in with a comment on your own books – or a link to your own post!
Day 23 and the next prompt is:
Name a book you have wanted to read for a long time and never have.
I was initially going to go with one of the classics for this prompt, such as “War and Peace”
I own the book and every time I pick it up I hear the book whisper:”You don’t have time…”
I Think though I will go with any of the more recent Pratchett books. When I am in a bookstore and seem them all pretty and lined up. Quietly waiting for my hand to open them up. I think “maybe I should try one more time”. So many choices!
And then I recall all the previous disappointments in reading Pratchett. I can’t really start in the middle – I’d have to go back and start with an earlier book. So much effort. So I smile and walk way.
Besides people already tell me all the good parts. I can read them via osmosis!
