  1. I regret to say that NO I did NOT complete my Spin Book. I didnt even start it. I just could NOT get into the Canherbury Tales.

    I have now failed 2 spins in a row. Although I did just swap out the first SPIN book for another book by the same author.

    I could not swap out the Canterbury Tales for any other book. I just could not read it at all. I did try though, I promise.

  3. Yes, I finished Charles Dickens’ The Old Curiosity Shop last week and wrote about it in this post http://www.booksplease.org/2015/10/21/the-old-curiosity-shop-by-charles-dickens/

    Despite its sentimentality I did like this book full of fascinating characters – weird, grotesque and comic, a mix of everyday people and characters of fantasy. It has elements of folklore and myth. There are long passages where Little Nell doesn’t feature and is hardly mentioned, so it’s by no means a totally sentimental tale.

      • Hey Brona…its a good book…very political and very social…very 60s…its a good book to read but you CANNOT rush through it in one go….its too much of philosophy/sociology/politics to absorb…so I am going to take some time to finish it….I would for sure recommend at least one reading of the book…slow and easy does it!

    • I had the same reaction to Three Men in a Boat. I was hoping it would be funnier than it was. I liked it fine but it is not a favorite. I think that humor is one of those things very tied to culture and time.
