With two weekends where I got to spend most of my time at home, it should not be terrifically surprising to anyone that I read more books.
I will also say that I started and stopped Brene Brown’s latest book and returned it straightaway to the library because I was finally honest with myself about the fact that I do not like her writing very much. I read The Gifts of Imperfection and Daring Greatly so I feel like I’ve given her work my best effort, but at the end of the day I just don’t think her message was written for me.
All of this is to say, that if you start a book you don’t particularly like, it’s okay to put it down! I would say that I do this fairly infrequently, but I wish I would have been clever enough to start it sooner because it would have saved me from other monstrosities like House of Sand and Fog (that was seriously awful).
