First, if you haven’t voted for July’s book, take a moment to do so now!
Okay, guys. I have a confession to make. I’m struggling with Moments of Being.
It’s not that I find the reading hard. I’m actually kind of shocked by how easily I find myself slipping into Woolf’s writing. She writes so fluidly and has such a wonderful way of talking about people. I’m just not that interested in what she has to say, at least in the initial piece (“Reminiscences,” in my edition). I’ve only gotten through the introduction and the first few chapters of “Reminiscences.” I find myself kind of bored. And with limited reading time, I keep picking up other books instead of this month’s pick.
So, I’m giving myself permission to pick and choose. If a particular piece isn’t grabbing me, I’ll move on and hopefully find one that will.
I’m sorry I don’t have more insights for today. Virginia Woolf just isn’t working for me at present.
How is Moments of Being going for you?
