I started listening to this but.....It's not the book, it's me.


For some reason I was expecting a novel. I have enough nonfiction going on for novel research and try not to do too much nonfiction on audio. My mind was wandering....it was due back at the library....I wanted to listen to Fahrenheit 451 to discuss it with my daughter. This book seems like it is well done, but it just wasn't the right time for me. I hope to return to it some other time, so I'm returning it to my planning to read shelf instead of calling it a DNF.
