Last week’s book became almost impossible to get through. Between the psychological things and what I found to be a snail’s pace narrative, I really thought I’d lose the challenge. It’s been dragging a bit in general. This week is going much better, though. I’m re-reading the first book of the Lord of the Rings set: The Fellowship of the Ring. Having not read this in years, I’m surprised at how much I’ve forgot. The pace has quickened a great deal, though, and I have no doubt that I’ll get through the next few weeks. Hopefully, by the time I’ve completed the series, things will have calmed down in my personal life and I will be able to approach the challenge with steadier confidence.
