Last night I decided that if I put this book down to take a break from it, I am not going to pick it up again. So I am gritting my teeth and grinding on into part two. I have roughly twenty chapters left, but thankfully the chapters are short. Last night I decided to delete Little Men and Jo's Boys from my NOOK because I can't see myself ever reading those follow ups to Little Women. Next quarter's classic reading is going to be a short one (probably Ray Bradbury's Fareinheit 451)!
