|I've finished 11/13ths of these.|
After a couple of weeks of struggling, I've given up on Corelli's Mandolin and Lorna Doone. And while I'm not exactly pining after them, I do feel a bit like an illiterate boor for having given up on books that have obviously brought pleasure to generations before me. It may be that I've turned into one of those "must-be-entertained" people that tend to get on my nerves. Sigh...
Oh, well. Bring on the 21st century literature, if you please! Hold the cultured bits.
Have you read many classics? Did you like them? Or are you a more modern reader?
