A surprising juxtaposition of the seventeenth century with classical times.
Disappointing, overrated, just not good: What book did you feel as if you were supposed to like, and didn’t? Do you remember the last book you put down without finishing?
Somewhere along the line I liberated myself from the idea that I have to finish every book I start, instantly enlarging my exposure to new kinds of books.
A book doesn’t have to be to my taste to be “good.”
