I AM NOT A QUITTER, but lately I sure feel like one. I started The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde - I LOVE Jane Eyre so thought I would love this one as well. Disappointingly - no, I did not love it, could barely get into it and so I gave up. I am wondering if I should try it again however, since on Amazon it got high reviews. SO - on to my next read - I really need a good one!!!

I quit books all the time. There are so many I love that I won't waste my time reading something I don't.

So do you have any creative ideas for my book blog name? :-) When I wrote my post on my blog yours was one of the book blogs I was talking about. :-) I love it! Can't wait to join the ranks, although I don't know what kind of reviewer I am other than "that one was really good, I loved it" LOL I will probably mostly just list what I am reading and what I want to read. We'll see.

Have a great day!

That's what kind of reviewer I am so don't feel badly - sometimes it's just nice to have someone else's comments to go from!!

I'm thinking of calling my new book blog "My Book Blog" LOL Seriously, I can't think of anything. Thanks for the suggestions though! They were good!

Yeah, I SO do that often. Like I really do judge a book by its cover. If the author wasn't smart enough to choose a nice and attractive cover, then he won't be smart enough to write a decent book. So I don't even try to read them... unless they are award winning or something. So you go girl! If you don't like it, then feel freeeeeeeee to drop it!

I usually use the 50 page rule. Though sometimes I'll keep going even if a book doesn't catch me right away. Then I usually regret it!

I read THE EYRE AFFAIR too and didn't like it. I read it because I had heard good hype about it, but it just didn't do it for me.

I like your blog - can I post a link on mine?
