Since I was a kid I’ve always had rules. Rules in life, in reading, in thinking. RUles in everything. It probably – no, definitely – has to do with my OCD. My very basic reading rules were as follows
- No reading two books at once.
- No quitting books midway.
- No starting series from the middle.
I have broken these, but I can count the number of times on my fingers. However, I think I’m going to be breaking #1 again. I don’t want to quit A Casual Vacancy but my rule of sticking to one book at a time is making me not read because I’m really not enjoying that book. I think I’m going to start something else and then maybe go back to it. I have been reading it for two months and I’m barely halfway. I miss reading and reading should be something I enjoy. So yes, Rowling I’m sorry but you’ve failed me. Good bye.
