bookshelves: couldn-t-finish

I should add another shelf, "didn't really try hard enough." Abish's "How German iIs It" is one of my favorite novels of all time, but this one, for me, is too much of a gag attempt, an authorial joke that's certainly fun to do but shouldn't necessarily be published. But no, I didn't give it a decent chance, but I've still got 20-30 books on the "in-the-middle'-of" shelf. Let someone else have a chance at this when I drop it off.
