Just a question. Does anyone have a book they keep trying again and again to read, because it sounds so good and you're convinced you would love it if you could get into it, but you can't ever get into it?
Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. I don't know what it is about that book, I just never seem to finish it. It's not even that long!
No, because by definition, if I can't get into it after a couple of tries, I know its not actually for me. Doesn't matter what else is in the book, if it can't hook me then adios.
And why the perfect number of books in a bookcase is "just a few more"... Speaking as someone with 100[?] books under my bed because the 6 book cases I have are already overflowing...
