I need a break from biographies

I just got done reading Caitlin: Life With Dylan Thomas (by Caitlin Thomas). I didn’t enjoy the book at all. Caitlin Thomas seemed to hate her husband almost immediately after they got married, and was sort of indifferent to him before then. The book reminds me a little of Dido Merwin’s writing about Sylvia Plath--petty and bitter to the point that it seems like they’re being a bully.

Yeah, it was really hard to get through the book.

Still, I admire you for finishing it. I have an overactive "toss" reflex. I find I give up on things too easily.

Thanks Laura!

I sometimes wish I wasn't so OCD about finishing every book I start--I think I end up wasting my time with certain books.
