This. It defeated me a year ago, but I've decided that I'm going to power through it this time. I've yet to start...

I read about 150 pages of it last year but after that I just bogged down with class work and Steinbeck and never got a chance to finish it. I'm still just halfway through Portrait of the Artist as well.

I'd throw East of Eden into that category too. I hated it the entire time I was reading it because of how wordy and drawn out it was, but afterwards I count it among my top 10 favorite books.

Come to think of it, the only large volume reading that I didn't get bogged down on at all was when I read all the Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy stuff and that clocks in at well over 1,000 pages. Still, quite possibly the funniest stuff every written at times.

yeah i haven't read that yet. my friend has and said it was good. i try to read a book in just one setting but sometimes i put it down for a few weeks and pick it back up for some reason. i bet a lot of people do that though.

When I was ready really heavily, I'd have 3 books going at one time and try to read at least a chapter a day in each.

I can't recommend the Hitchhiker's series enough. It just takes some time to find all the parts. Walden books usually has the trilogy for $20 but there's another book and short story after those. I think the complete volume can be had in paperback for around $30. If you like totally irrelevant and senseless humor that isn't that lowbrow, you should enjoy it thoroughly.

i can only read music books or some history books when i'm reading a few books at once. when reading a novel, i have to just pay attention to that one novel. i think that's why i put down a novel for awhile because i find another one and i try to read them both but i have to pick and chose in the end.

i'll check it out. when i move i'll have plenty of time to read whatever books i decide to read, but that may well be one of them.

I'm just finishing up the China Mieville collection of stories called Looking for Jake. Quite a bit more horror material than his well known Fantasy-SF novels, but equally well written.
