Today’s suggestion is from Cereal Box Reader
I would enjoy reading a meme about people’s abandoned books. The books that you start but don’t finish say as much about you as the ones you actually read, sometimes because of the books themselves or because of the circumstances that prevent you from finishing. So . . . what books have you abandoned and why?
Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
My post is up! Happy BTT everyone. ^_^

An interesting question. My reply is here http://booksplease.blogspot.com/2007/10/booking-through-thursday-read-with.html
Yeah! I’ve missed the last couple of weeks, but I’m up today. Great question!! Come visit me at http://stephaniesbooks.blogspot.com/
My answer is up here:
I just recently abandoned Falling Man by Don DeLillo. The description interested me, the juxtaposition of the actual person and the performance artist that was copying him interested me, but DeLillo’s writing was dryer than the Sahara and confusing to boot. Which she is speaking now? Is this him, or is it the other guy that he helped? etc.
Here’s mine- Happy Thursday! 🙂
Great question, and a lot of fun to answer!
I liked this one!
I’m up. And I’m off to see how other people decide about these things….
Great question! My answer, such as it is, is here. 🙂
Mine’s up here:
Sometimes, books may need to be abandoned (temporarily?).
I’m in for the first time. Here’s my post.
Good topic! I’m up:
Happy BTT, and have a great weekend!

I hope I did this right! Here’s mine:
I haven’t abandoned many books recently. You can my full answer here.
Thanks for another great question. It gave me a good bit to think about.

After a couple of weeks away, here’s my response:
Here is my entry.
Mine is up.
Okay, mine is up!
there’s only been one in recent history. it was non-fiction. it’s a book about diets based on your blood-type. the more i read, the angrier i got. it kept telling me that all my favorite foods were bad for me, and the reason why iw as having headaches, and why i have arthritis (it’s inherited, idiot). sorry, i live through my food. i’m a foodie. i refuse to use certain mouthwashes because i CAN’T STAND THE TASTE. i’ve been hunting for a decently tasting toothpaste for years, because i hate mint. (and the lemon one was even more disgusting, oy). sorry, couldn’t do it. almost threw the book across the room myself, except it was a library b ook. it went back unfinished, needless to say.
as for jonathan strange and mr norrell? i listened to it on booktape. made it much easier to get through, as i listened in the car. wanna know how it ends, lol?

I suppose better late than never, considering this was my question.
