I am ashamed to admit the halting speed at which I read non-fiction, and even more so because this is the most fair, just, and compassionate salute to all the quiet leaders amongst us.

Reasons for DNF
1. It is painfully similar to The Hunger Games. Unless it's fanfiction, I get pretty upset when a book is too much like another one I've read. This may not be the author's intention, but I was very very unnerved by the striki

Doris Lessing
“Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.”
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook

Haruki Murakami
“Don't feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
