Booking Through Thursday


Booking Through Thursday

What's the hardest/most challenging book you've ever read? Was it worth the effort? did you read it by choice or was it an assignment/obligation?

The most challenging book I've ever read was as a young girl, Little Women. I was not into reading at that time . The book was a gift and I felt obligated to read it. Now I can appreciate it.

  2. I've never actually read "Little Women" *hangs head in shame* Glad you could appreciate it eventually.

    Here's my BTT - House Millar series

  3. I loved Little Women as a kid and I must have read it over and over. I'm different to you in that I picked it myself so I didn't feel obligated.

    My BTT is here if you'd like a look :)

  5. I never read it until my 20s, by which time I enjoyed it. When younger, any book would have been a challenge.

  6. Haven't read this one, but I have seen it mentioned a few times today!
    May give it a shot though, since I do hear good things about it!

  7. I've never even read Little Women, and I'm pretty sure it's a mandatory read if you're a girl! I'll have to pick it up sometime ... I'd probably appreciate it more now than I would've when I was younger.

  8. I loved that book growing up, but I can imagine being obliged to read any book can kill the spirit of it.

  9. It's funny how your perspective changes, isn't it?

    Anthonynorth, Val Gryphin- You're right.

    bermudaonion- Yes, it wouldn't be a challenge to read now.

  11. Right now, I'm heading into the finish line of a year-long readalong of War and Peace - honestly, even at a chapter a day, this one is challenging, mainly because Tolstoy isn't consistent with the names he uses for many of the characers, and I have a difficult time keeping them straight in my mind. All I can say is, at the end of the year, I'll be able to say I read it.

  12. I loved "Little Women" though always felt Jo ended up with the wrong man. *sigh*
