The Phantom Tollbooth & Why I Read Past the First Chapter

The Phantom Tollbooth & Why I Read Past the First Chapter

In which I talk about a book that I can’t actually remember very well, but that I know I loved as a kid. I also blame it for why I have guilt over DNF (did not finish) books.

Well, not really. I actually thank it for teaching me to always give a book a reasonable chance, but the other way sounds more interesting.

 

 

Do you put books down unfinished? Why or why not? And what’s something that a book’s taught you? Let me know in the comments!

 

Talking About Books & A Video

Talking About Books & A Video

My lovely friend A.S. Akkalon does amazing not-reviews of books on her website. They’re funny, entertaining, and make more sense to me than an actual book review. I know I did a lot of analysing books way back in the foggy years of school (and a year of English Lit at uni), but I didn’t enjoy it that much then, and I have no intentions of trying it again now.

Therefore, allow me to present my first chat about books. Also my first video (other than my old fitness and yoga ones, but I didn’t have to talk at the same time in those). I hope you enjoy it (and can understand it – I’m guilty of mumbling on a regular basis).

Let me know what you think, and if there’s anything in particular you’d like me to natter about in the future!

 

 

Have you read Sleeping Beauties? What are your thoughts on it?
