Q: Have you ever read a book that you thought you would hate -- ? Did you end up hating it? Did you end up loving it? Or would you never do that?
A: I can't remember having done this in the recent past. I tend to be pretty unforgiving when it comes to not finishing books that don't grab me, so odds are if I start a book with a prejudice and it doesn't change my mind quickly, I'm not going to get anywhere.
That said, I read books for school all the time that make me groan when I see the cover. Just yesterday I was slogging through Tacitus' history of Rome--and while it was long and a bit miserable, some parts were inspiring, exciting (the battle narratives!), and even funny. Who knew?
