Good Monday Morning to you all. I hope you had a great weekend full of lots of hours lost in a book. I spent much of mine struggling with a book. Bitched a bit about it over on Facebook and then started looking for something else to do besides read. This is usually one of the indicators that I need to DNF a title, but I’ve decided to stick this one out…mainly so I can rip it to shreds in a review. Also because I’ve gotten myself into a little bit of a snit over all the people who haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey that are going on and on over how horrible it is and that it will be the undoing of society as we know it…(I wish that was an exaggeration)… To all those people I say, if you haven’t read it then shut the hell up. If you’ve read it then you have earned to right to share your opinions on the matter. Nothing pisses me off more than book snobs, bullies and those who take things they have heard out of context to prove their stand.
Alright, I’ll save the rest of that little tirade for another day. My current read is the classic, Pride and Prejudice, an awful book that I can not stand on so many fronts (but lets save that for review). I don’t normally read ‘true’ classics because they can’t keep my attention. I should keep a pile of them on the night stand for those spells of insomnia. What might be considered ‘modern’ classics, like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I tend to have an easier time with and quite often enjoy. I do remember reading Jane Eyre and enjoying it in college, but it is an exception to the rule for me. What about you? Do you read, and enjoy, classics? Do you have some titles I should try that are better than my current classic read Pride and Prejudice? Or are you like me and tend to stay clear of them for they bore you to pieces?
