I really hope it works out, though. It's somewhat expensive (for me, anyway; I'm broke) but it'd be worth it in the long run because I spend a small fortune every year on books. If I can cut back by using this service (or swapping books), I'll be pleased as punch.
On a different note, I had my first DNF (did not finish) of the year and on a popular book to boot: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah E. Harkness. I don't even know for sure why I couldn't finish it and that confuses me. A lot.
At first glance this book seemed like it was right up my alley or at least an alley close to mine and it should have been smooth sailing. But it wasn't. In the first few pages of the book, I found myself struggling to get into it and questioning some of the writing choices. I also found myself annoyed that the author just plopped out the fact that the main character was a witch without any lead in. It was just "so-and-so is a witch with witch-like people around her". My response: "all right, good to know *walks away*".
Perhaps my expectations were too high for this or I experienced that disconnect I sometimes get when I don't have the actual book in my hand (I was reading it on my Kindle Fire) but as a rule, if I struggle with reading something for more than a few pages, I put it aside to read at a different time. I ended up adding it to the bottom of my booksfree queue. Maybe I'll be able to finish it another time.
Lastly: Whitechapel. My good graces this show has absolutely become my newest addiction. I watched Series 2 and 3 this weekend (all I can say is: Kent, my heart aches for you) and then went hunting for fic...and found there's barely any! It's such a shame too because not only is the show lovely but it's choking on its own fic potential. I mean: murder, mayhem, and sexual tension, how can this show stand itself?!
Ah, well. I'll keep holding on and hoping. Or try to find someone to fangirl with. ;)
