Letting Lincoln Go

I have given up on this book, even though I was on page 178. The reason is simple: I do not care about John Wilkes Booth.

Quitting a book weighs heavily on me, and I usually try to power through. As a result, I found that I was not reading. This book was clogging up my reading flow, so I tossed it.

Sometimes, quitting is a beautiful thing.

About Ron
I teach English and government in Okinawa, Japan. I love reading theology and fiction, and my52books.com helps keep me accountable. Reading with three kids under 5 is a bit of a challenge, but I keep trying to find ways to read more. My favorites writers are C. S. Lewis, Flannery O’ Connor, and Raymond Carver.
