This week’s BTT:
What book took you the longest to read, and do you feel it was the content or just the length that made it so?
I think the content is usually what makes it take awhile. I thought about this for a bit, and the longest book was JRR Tolkien’s The Two Towers. I read The Fellowship of the Ring and started TTT, but I was getting bored so I put it down. Soon after, someone gave me the last two books for a birthday present as well. When that happens, I’m even less inclined to finish a book because I know it’s there. So I left it in limbo for at least 5-7 years. I can’t remember when I finished it exactly but it was definitely over five years later. I wasn’t actively reading it. It just fell by the wayside.
Length doesn’t bother me. I read War & Peace in two weeks and actually enjoyed myself because of the content.
