The Anti-Book Club
For what is possibly the first time in my life, I am completely rejecting a book. [NOTE: This is a rejection after starting it, not without even giving it a chance. See: Twilight]
The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon is one of the oldest recorded personal accounts of anything that comes from Japan. It is a very random collection of poems, lists, descriptions, etc. Basically a weird diary.
A friend gave me this book a year and a half ago, and I've been looking forward to reading it ever since [yes, that's a long time haha].
After about 10 pages, I have determined that I just cannot read this book. It is ridiculous. I can't read it, and I wont. On to something better!
I honestly considered throwing out the book, but I've decided that I'll go on BookCrossing.com and leave it somewhere for someone to pick up. Maybe they'll enjoy it more than me.
Have you ever quit a book?
