Finish reading an abandoned (for at least one month) book that you were reluctant to start the first time. Perhaps it was a school assignment, or maybe a book club pick you voted against. It still counts even if you wound up liking it after all!

I had a few prompts from other challenges that Strength & Compassion: Photographs and Essays fit. One was to read a book that would challenge my opinion, and another one was to read a book by somebody I would probably disagree with spiritually. I didn't really like either of those prompts, but when Greitens resigned in disgrace from the Missouri governorship, I felt an odd compulsion to find and read this book. Short as it was, it was a slog, so I abandoned it for quite some time before finishing it in a rush to get it back to the library.
