So this is normally when I would give you a rundown of what I read this month. You know, books. Pages. What was good. What books weren't worth the time.
The recap for the month of January is short. Here it is...
Yup. Nothing. I didn't finish a single book in January. It's not because I didn't try though. I spent all month reading. It's just the book I chose to read? It's super thick. And the print? It's tiny. So it takes forever to read even 10 pages.
I know you're probably thinking, what the heck are you reading?
After looking at it sitting on my shelf, unread, for the past two years, I decided to dive into "Gone With the Wind" to start the new year. At 1,024 pages, I knew it would be a tough task to finish the entire thing before the end of January. And I was right. I'm only on page 737 and at this point, I still haven't gotten to the famous line Rhett Butler utters, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." I've been waiting and waiting for it to come up. And last night those hopes were somewhat dashed when a friend of mine told me it wasn't even in the book, that it was just added to the movie.
Here's hoping I finish Scarlett O'Hara's story soon. Because it's taken me a long time already. And I really want to find out if Rhett does indeed utter that phrase or if it was just an add in for the movie. And I can't have a February recap that mimics this one because two months in a row with no finished books? Not allowed.
