A bad run…

My Twitter hash tag to accompany #reading of late has been #4shitbooksandcounting – seriously, is my bad book run penance for the glorious Baxter, Tiffany and Hartnet weeks?!

One of my Twitter pals wisely suggested re-reading some old favourites to break the spell – good idea. I may have to turn to some character-rich Henry James or some sentimental John Irving to get back on track.

At the risk of a new hash tag, #5shitbooksandcounting, I’m going to quickly read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins to see what all the fuss is about. If that’s not reasonable, it will be ‘Hello Irving and James’!

What do you do when you have a bad run of books?

PS. The picture above is of a sculpture made from 25,000 Dr. Seuss Books for the New York Public Library – I love it.
