Truth and Confessions Time

I tip my hat to fellow Word Nerd, Bethany, for sticking to her reading goal and getting through Anna Karenina.

I failed miserably.

I got to about the same spot I always get to, 75 to 100 pages into the story and went, blech, I don't feel like reading this.

Give me some Bronte sisters. Or some Jane Austen. Heck, I finished Pamela by Samuel Richardson even. I simply cannot make it anywhere in AK. And I don't know why.

I feared that this may happen. I have a fairly high credit load this semester (six credits). And work is demanding as always. When it came right down to it, picking between AK and my finance homework, well, finance won.

Perhaps if Bethany throws another challenge out after AK, I'll join during the summer months. For now, I'll admit that my alter identity is not a fan of the Russians.

Point of fact, I have not made it through yet. I am into Pt. III and have spent the last few chapters reading about wheat threshing. I would gladly bail, but now that I've started, I'm sort of determined to finish.
