Damned If I Won’t Read and Review: Even If I’m Ugly

Damned If I Won’t Read and Review: Even If I’m Ugly

Reading, Like It Or Not

This, campbellsworld visitors is the book that puts me to sleep, and is, the source of upset in my world.

It is the book chosen for our fall classic reading on a book review list I belong to.

This book, for whatever reason, puts me to sleep. I don’t know if it is the book subject matter, the narrator, who, is quite good, or just me.

But, so far I’ve had no luck getting into the thing.

Now, I said as much in a message to the review list I speak of, in this, and another post, and I’ve seen similar messages from others. Concerning books that for various reasons, most of which they could not decide what they were or why they felt them, put them to sleep, and no one said a word, but me, I say such, I as usual get a reprimand.

So tired of it, but Damned if I’m not going to make myself read this book, and review it!!!!

Just to spite them all!

My stomach’s churning, my eyes from crying are burning, but the book is on my wish list, now ready to be downloaded onto the BARD App and read.

It’s late tonight, so won’t start it now. Don’t want to fall asleep again.

I’ll read this book with coffee to hand, and even if I have to get up and walk around to stay awake.

Eat a tin of cookies, what the hell ever.

I will read it. I will review it, intelegently and purposefully, and I will contribute to their discussion, and I’ll do it even if I’m ugly, and it won’t matter but I’m going to do it just the same!
