I feel like I have been in a bit of a reading slump lately It is not that I am reading a whole lot less I am just not REALLY enjoying the time that I am reading It might be that the whole family is in back to school mode so schedules have changed Or maybe just the general ups and downs of life will occasionally put me in a low interest in reading category All of this just to say that The Wind in The Willows is another victim of my reading is meh stateWhen I first started this I tried to read it to my kids every night I figured since it was written for a younger crowd and I found it in the kid s books section at the library it might be perfect for them I recently read The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe to them and they loved it So this would be the next best step right Nope they were not interested at all We sat down for about 10 nights straight trying to read this and they uickly lost interest loudly exclaiming I m bored after a few pages Around 40 or 50 pages in I finally gave upThen I went on to reading it on my own Maybe my experience was tainted by my disgruntled children but I was not getting much excited about it than they did Every time I read it I had to force myself to refocus as my mind was wandering Now this is not a complicated book so the fact that I was losing touch with the content was definitely a red flag And I think another thing about it that was frustrating was that most of the book is really long run on sentences with lots of commas You might think that doesn t make a difference but it is uite taxing on the brain when sentence after sentence goes on and on without a break I kept wanted to yell yes yes I get it You can stop now For many this is a classic If it was released now I am not sure if it would be met with the same excitement The story is kind of silly which is okay as it is for kids But since it didn t keep my kids interested it must not be the right kind of silly I need to look into the background of this story as I am sure that the anthropomorphic woodland creatures interacting with humans in a normal fashion must be an allegory for something Or maybe it all doesn t mean anything Either way I am glad it is finally done and on the bright side of things I can check another classic off the list Rappin' With Ten Thousand Carabaos in the Dark Poems kids every night I figured since it was written for a younger crowd and I found it in the Teach Me Gems Gents #1 kid s books section at the library it might be perfect for them I recently read The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe to them and they loved it So this would be the next best step right Nope they were not interested at all We sat down for about 10 nights straight trying to read this and they uickly lost interest loudly exclaiming I m bored after a few pages Around 40 or 50 pages in I finally gave upThen I went on to reading it on my own Maybe my experience was tainted by my disgruntled children but I was not getting much excited about it than they did Every time I read it I had to force myself to refocus as my mind was wandering Now this is not a complicated book so the fact that I was losing touch with the content was definitely a red flag And I think another thing about it that was frustrating was that most of the book is really long run on sentences with lots of commas You might think that doesn t make a difference but it is uite taxing on the brain when sentence after sentence goes on and on without a break I Blameless in Abaddon kept wanted to yell yes yes I get it You can stop now For many this is a classic If it was released now I am not sure if it would be met with the same excitement The story is Croatie - 9ed kind of silly which is okay as it is for One Day At A Time kids But since it didn t 41 Closets keep my Red Riding Hood kids interested it must not be the right Irreparable Damage Irreparable #1 kind of silly I need to look into the background of this story as I am sure that the anthropomorphic woodland creatures interacting with humans in a normal fashion must be an allegory for something Or maybe it all doesn t mean anything Either way I am glad it is finally done and on the bright side of things I can check another classic off the list
