Day 18 of #GratefulReads is #BeenOnYourTBRTooLong and now is when I reveal my literary dark secret! I‘ve been reading Nicholas Nickelby for YEARS! It started okay but I got bogged down in parts and then I just stalled on it. Dickens is not my idea of fun times. 🤦🏻‍♀️

OriginalCyn620 Ha! Totally understand that! 2w

The Glass Bead Game | Hermann Hesse, Magister Ludi

This book debuted on my TBR in 2008 on my spouse's recommendation. It still sounds awesome, but for some reason, I've not managed to pick it up yet.

I've been seeing the #GratefulReads posts but it only registered this morning that they were part of a challenge. Sometimes it takes me a while, but I'm jumping in now on Day 18!

@OriginalCyn620 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

OriginalCyn620 Glad to have you aboard! 3w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Happy to have you 😍 3w
Billypar It's good! I liked Steppenwolf slightly more, but it's an interesting world Hesse creates around this game. 2w

I started this book months ago and really love it so far, but every time I try to go back to it I get distracted by other things I'm reading! So it has definitely been on my TBR list for longer than I would like! 😁💕📚

This has #BeenOnYourTBRTooLong; 8 years, in fact. I started reading about 4 years ago, then other stuff got in the way and I have yet to pick it up again. Shapiro neatly dispenses with the contenders for the “who really wrote Shakespeare‘s plays?” question. I really must finish it soon.
