I'm taking a vote. I've hit that time of year (or maybe I've simply gotten to a point on my book list) where I'm just ready to take up with an old familiar friend of a book instead of powering through on my quest to read all the greats before I die. So since this whole blog is about that aforementioned quest, I need your opinion. Should I:
A) Dive with reckless abandon into the world of Anne Shirley for the umpteenth time and don't even look back.
B) Go off-list and read one of my new Robin Jones Gunn books which is bound to be a friendly read for a little break and then hit it hard again once I've finished it.
C) Suck it up and stick to the list because I actually have a shot at finishing it this year which leads to two sub-choices:
1) Keep soldiering on through The Pilgrim's Progress.
2) Take a break from Bunyan and start one of the remaining books on my list that might be a little easier to get through.
So your choices are A, B, C1 or C2. And if your answer is C2, I will then need you to cast a vote from the remaining books on my list.
a) Secrets of the Blessed Man by Paul Tassell
b) The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
c) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
d) Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss
This is not a drill, people. I need your honest opinions, and I need them ASAP. Be a pal and vote. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. My name is Hannah Hancock, and I approve this message.
