I'm embarrassed to say this, but the are two major categories of books that I've never read.
1. I have never read anything by Charles Dickens
2. And I have never read anything by a Russian.
So I decided to start reading A Tale of Two Cities. I have started this book at least five times, but now I am on page 39, which is way farther than I have ever gotten before.
Here are my opinions about it so far. It is confusing! After I read the first three chapters, I had to go read the sparknotes for those chapters to make sure I understood what was going on! Fortunately, I was right about what I thought was happening, so now I am reading with more confidence. Secondly, it is boring. Like SO boring. Someone please tell me it becomes less so? Soon?
