 I hate giving up on a book.

My Dad was always starting books then abandoning them. I used to tease him about it, back when I was younger and had enough spare time to finish every book I started.

I'm old now. I'm acutely aware that I'm a slow reader, and there are only so many books I will read before I die. 

So, sorry Gillian Mears. I tried. But Foal's Bread just wasn't grabbing me. I read maybe 60 pages in two weeks. I just found the voice hard work to get through. And then A. bought me The Harp in the South as a present, and I've already read 60 pages this weekend.

I feel bad about abandoning a book, especially one that received such high praise. But there are only so many book I'll read before die.  Looks like Foal's Bread won't be one of them.
