BR: Dilemma- wwyd? NOTW

OK- I have tried to pick-up Name of the Wind repeatedly this past week.  I can't get into it.  I know this may be due mostly to my being a stress ball and not being able to concentrate.  WWYD?  Keep trying or put it aside until life calms down and just try to read something else right now.

    Put it down.  You really have to concentrate on it in the beginning.  Sort out what's happening with your mother and have her start healing before you pick it up again.  You need something mindless and easy right now.

  • Honey, you have too much on your plate to enjoy it right now. Mark me down for saying put it down and try again later.

    I am praying for you and your mom.  I'm sorry you're having to go through all of that.  Not knowing is sometimes scarier than knowing.

  • I agree, I would put it away until things calm down a bit.  My thoughts and prayers are with your mom and family.

    I agree with pp. Put it down, wait till you have time to focus. Right now you have too much on your plate to concentrate on anything else.

    Yes This.  I vote for picking up one of your old, worn-out favorites to fill any reading time you actually find yourself with.

    I'm saving it for Halloween this year Smile  I did just start The Gunslinger... but evil forces on this board are trying to tear me away and start Game of Thrones instead. I think I'll get through at least the first two DT books before switching to GOT.

    Yes!  Don't stop after book 1- you'll never want to go back to it again LOL  I may need to do an IT read along with you this year ;).  Maybe we should make it the Oct SK book we do annually

    I will def campaign HARD for that - I really want to make it my fun Halloween read, but I don't want to miss out on a SK read-along if it's another book!  Not that I couldn't do both, but still... and I would love for you to read it w/ me!
