I started reading Anna Karenina after we returned from our trip to Mexico City at the beginning of the month, and I am down to the last hundred pages. There's over 800, so I feel like I'm finally in the home stretch. This is my second time attempting to read Tolstoy's book about Russian society and all the troubles and turmoils of their love lives and I'm beyond thrilled that I'm finally going to finish it.
If you read Saturday's post you saw I have four new books to read (in addition to six or seven still unread novels on the shelf) but I refuse to let myself so much as flip through them until I finish Anna. Moonrat recently read it, and she said that she felt the eighth and final book was unnecessary. Umm, great.
Doesn't matter though, I WILL finish it! At this point it's feeling a bit like homework, but I was the girl who always did my homework, so maybe that's what I need to get through it.
What about you -- are there any books that you've had to force yourself to finish, and why?
