Here's the thing...
Ever since I discovered the NON Fiction Challenge that I am starting in January, I have been less and less inclined to want to continue reading classical fiction.
This is not an excuse, but several years ago, I discovered that I have a Scanner type personality. We scanners are hard wired to always be learning. We can't learn from classic fiction. Unless it's historical fiction. LOL
And besides that, I am having a devil of a time even trying to get into the Spin Book I am supposed to be reading - The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain.
If Mark had only written this book in 19th century english, I could have managed it. But no, its mostly written in this 16th century shakespeare type language which makes it devilishly hard to read.
So I have decide that I will do NO MORE Spins. I have failed at 3 out of 3 Spins. I always get the wrong number and the wrong books.
I will keep this blog open to read and review those classics on my list that I DO want to read.
I will also do the LHOTP readalong for next year since that is only one book a month. I shouldn't have too much problem with that.
So basically, starting in January 2016, I will be mostly reading NON fiction books for the NON fiction challenge.
Please see my NON Fiction blog for details.
