But I don’t wanna!

Friday, October 16th, 2009

I’m trying. I really am. I know my professor wouldn’t have chosen this book if she didn’t feel that it qualified as “literature” and conveyed something of vital importance to our understanding of queer culture.

But I kinda wanna gouge out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon rather than read it.

What do you do with a book you *have* to read, but really, truly dislike? Do you try to get it over with and sit through it all at once? Put it off and read a bit at a time to try and make the whole more palatable? Skim like crazy and hope you’ve gotten enough of the gist for whatever obligates you to read it?
