bookshelves: some-day-i-will-finish-it

I'm having a hard time getting into it, but I am trying to keep going because so many have told me it's worth it. This may be on the "currently reading" list for a while.

Can't finish. Can't even start, really. I feel like he tried to make it read a little more like a "novel" (I am using the term very loosely, mind you), but for my very small brain it still reads too much like a text book. I love history, but I hate reading textbooks. I own the book, so I'm hoping some day I will have the inclination to read it, but not right now. At this point in my life, I need a little more of a release when I read. I really do want to read it... I just can't make it.

Mandellagreen Green SO worth it. Stick with it. Just keep reading. eventually, you will figure out who is who--it takes a while. But this is an INDispensable read.
