Thanks to Ben, I finally have a new book to read. I’m an incredibly picky reader and can give up on a book at any time (or chapter). This sometimes discourages me from scouting for worthwhile books to read. A lot of them start off promising but fall flat after a few chapters. Quite a few that I’ve gone through were actually well written, but trailed off into human tragedy and depressing monologue that had me rushing to delete the offensive material off of my Kindle.
But, I started to read The Name of the Wind last night and have yet to fall asleep out of boredom, or roll my eyes at repetitive and overused adverbs, so I think that I might actually finish it.
