I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

Oh my. I struggled mightily to finish this one. It should rightfully have taken about two days. The language was simple, the print large, the pages few but... The problem with this book is that it continued to hold a single thread of interest for me so I couldn't just give it up entirely. Ultimately it was weird, shallow, flat. A waste of time, paper, ink, publishing rights. It is said that a work of fiction is published every 11 seconds in the United States, thereby making the chances of becoming a published author difficult and distant. A new author trying to establish a name in such a market is said to face immense challenges. With numbers like that how do books like this get through?
