Everyone’s taste in reading differs, I suppose. While reading Nina Sankovitch’s Tolstoy and the Purple Chair, I was surprised to note that she did not really like The Bridges of Madison County. Until I read her comment about The Bridges, I thought I was probably the only person in the Reading World who didn’t like the book. In addition, books that others have raved about just leave me cold and I began making a mental list of books I truly did not like and which everyone I knew DID.
My No-Like List (a partial list)
- the Left Behind series (admittedly, I only began reading the first one and realized I had no interest in reading further)
- The Shack
- The Bridges of Madison County
- most ‘Romance’ novels (I know I know – Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier has been classified as a Romance novel by some – and I loved that book)
Just some meandering thoughts about books; if you want a Good Read, do read Tolstoy and the Purple Chair.
Send me a note about books that you think are worth reading; I’m always looking!
