My “To Be Read” shelf (borrowed from Barbara Thompson, of course), after catching up on the Evanovich “Stephanie Plum” series, overfloweth in mysteries but I decided to go for straight-up fiction . . . “Flowers for Algernon”. Yeah, I know! BUT, we went to a cheapy bookstore last fall and it was there and I thought “Wow, I haven’t read that in a long time!” so I bought it (it was exceedingly cheap at $2.98). Yes, I’ve read the book before and yes, I’ve seen the movie but I really wanted to read it again so . . . here we are.
I know what you mean but for some reason, when I saw the book, I just HAD to have it!
I’m not sure I can read that again. Big as I might be, I still have finite volume, and I’ve only got just so many tears in me.
