bookshelves: 2012, with-holden, on-hold
Read from June 19 to December 26, 2012

(Was) reading this with/to The Boy. For a while he was really into it; then he lost interest. Couldn't get him re-engaged and/but mostly because he got *really* engaged in The Hobbit and a few other books. Anyway:

I can see why this is a classic, and though I was tempted to finish it on my own, I figured that I better stay true to the spirit of the reading (i.e., "with/to H.") and leave it on the shelf until he is ready to come back to it. (Not that I have any illusions there: we'll either be starting it over again, or he'll be reading it on his own.)

We left off on Chapter XXIV (pp. 225 in our copy).
