Just Jot It January is led by Linda G. Hill.
There's no prompt for Just Jot it January today as Wednesday is usually "One-Liner" day. As you probably know by now I don't do one lines.
So I'll make a confession instead. Yesterday I gave up on a book. I hate giving up on a book. In fact since I started reading books as part of 2 online book clubs last year I've always finished them.
I'm also slowing working through a BBC big read list and last year I got stuck on Catch 22. It took me ages to finish. I kept picking it up and putting it down. But I was determined to finish it.
What did I give up on? The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. Was it awful? I couldn't really tell you as I only read a few chapters. I just didn't like the main characters.
It probably sounds as if I just gave up but the book had been hanging around since November. (It's a library book and I've renewed it several times.) One of the clubs gives several book choices each month and I try and read as many as I can. But this means books I've been given are languishing on my TBR shelf.
I've now decided I will only pick one book from the list each month so with my other club that will mean 2 books per month. I'm averaging a book a week. So that will leave time for my own choices.
And it also justified my giving up on a book that I didn't really like.
