I can always tell if a book is going to be a slow read if it takes me almost two weeks to make it thru about 50 pages. Our current book club read is 'Chasing Harry Winston' and unfortunately it has been a slow start. I finally made it to about page 100 and it is starting to get good. I am the kind of reader that can't stand not finishing a book, so I am glad that I am sticking with it. So far the book has set up the story of three friends and their lives and their journey to change. I read a few more pages last night and I am finally getting into the story line. I plan on reading more this weekend and hopefully finishing in time for book club next Thursday. I hope the book only gets better.... time will tell!
