I have this terrible habit – sometimes I am in the middle of reading a really good book and I put it down and completely forget about it! I don’t know why this happens, but I guess I end up getting distracted by another book. This happened to me several YEARS ago with Anna Karenina, and I am just now picking it back up. It is SO good. I loved it when I was reading it. I love it now. What was I thinking?
In other news:
A book group that I am a member of, The Classical Review, is starting back up again. If you are a homeschooling mom who is using Charlotte Mason philosophies and wants to read (or re-read) some of the greats that you will be teaching your kids, then I invite you to join us. We are starting Mansfield Park, and I am super excited 🙂 I think there should be so many more groups out there to encourage moms to read what we want our children to read, and this is a great way to do it 🙂 Come and join us!
Ooooooooooooh, I’m almost ready to read another Jane Austen – but I have some other titles I want to get to first. Hope to hear all about what you think here. And I read Anna Karenina about two years ago-ish. I liked it, but it didn’t make my favorites list. I’d like to read more by Tolstoy as well.
I do the same thing! It’s such a strange habit. I have so many books I’m interested in and sometimes after reading a really good part of a book, I think I get a bit satisfied and move on to a different book. I’m becoming more aware of this though, and making myself go back and read through it. It’s much more satisfying than stopping in the middle! 🙂
