I think I’ve started reading Moby-Dick at least three times. I have finished Moby-Dick never.
I don’t know why – it’s not even that long, and it’s actually pretty interesting. But I cannot get to the end of it.
Same with Interview With the Vampire. I know I’ll love it, but I can’t get past the first few pages.
A couple of years ago I started Primal Fear, and same deal – I couldn’t get past the first chapter. I KNOW I will love that book, so I’m going to blame the fact I had a toddler and a newborn at the time, and couldn’t read much more than the back of the Weeties box.
But I want to know – what’s a book you just can’t finish?
