trying to be a good student...
by reading required novels before the semester starts, but I gotta tell you, I'm not liking Graham Greene. I'm trying to get through The Quiet American
and...bleh. I want to skip it and move on to something else. I have eight other books in my stack for that particular class
, having already read The Butcher Boy
by Patrick McCabe and Cal
by Bernard MacLaverty, and I'm afraid if I get stuck with this crappy book I'll just lose my momentum and not end up pre-reading anything.
I fully plan to read them all again during the semester, but I wanted to get pass number one over with before the semester actually started, when I'm just sitting on my butt twiddling my thumbs (and working and teaching). I also have several other books "for fun" that I'd like to get to... But I'll probably just end up skimming the last 150 pages and moving on to something else. I just have to psych myself up to do it.
