1. It's the worst.
    I'm always in a funk in February so the last thing I need is to be in the head of this main character. She's a sociopath in a permanent funk who hates life and gets joy from calling in bomb threats. No thanks.
  2. I can.
    I'm an adult. One of the best parts of adulthood is doing as you damn well please. (As long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.)
  3. I sometimes like giving up on things.
    Saying no to this book that isn't doing it for me means I get to say yes to all the books I actually want to read! I think quitting things that aren't meant for us is healthy and necessary.
  4. I have a book checked out from the library that I really want to read and it was due two days ago.
    Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes. I've read four and a half pages and I love it already.
  5. Chris K isn't here anymore.
    I'm definitely hoping all is well with him but it's nice knowing I'm not disappointing him. When he does return I pray this list is buried under his millions of notification.
  6. I decided this in the shower tonight and immediately felt better about life.
    For real, I'm so relieved.
  7. In related news, I have a book-o-ganza book up for grabs if anyone wants it.
    Maybe you'll have better luck?
  8. Zazen by Vanessa Veselka
    Here's a list by someone who loves this book. BOOKS SO GOOD I WISH I COULD READ THEM AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME

    She continues to amaze. Here is her fabulous list about her beast of a book. THE COLLECTED STORIES OF KATHERINE MANSFIELD, MY LIST APP BOOK-O-GANZA BOOK
