I don't know what the deal is, but I am having the hardest time with my current read, Blonde. I have wanted to read this book for a while and it's an interesting subject, but I have this book out from the library for almost five weeks and I've barely gotten to page 50. Some of the problem, I believe, is the heft of the book. Not that it's too long, but it's too big. It's a hardback edition of an almost 800 page book. And no joke, my hands get tired holding this book for much more than three or four pages at a time. So that's how I'm reading it. In four page increments. I considered turning it back into the library and just reading other things, maybe coming back to it near the end of the challenge, but I would still have the same problem. So I'm forging ahead, trying to get through it. But it's taking me forever.
