*may contain spoilers*

I have a rule that I have to read at least 100 pages of a book before I give it up for good. I feel that is a good try, gives me enough time to make an educated decision on whether I like the book. And so, 126 pages in, I have decided I am done with The Poisonwood Bible. I can't really put my finger on what I don't like about the book, I just know I don't care about anything that happens. Just don't care. So instead of forcing my way through it, I'm just going to move onto the next book and hope it's better.

This is not exactly the way to jump start 2009...

That is a bad way to start the new year. I feel like I need to hand you a really good book fast! ;D

Maggie - I started reading Jane Austen's "Emma" after deciding to quit "The Poisonwood Bible" which is MUCH better. Hopefully the year picks up!
