I Wear the Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman.

It’s not very often that I don’t finish a book. Generally, when I start a book, I finished the series. If I don’t like a book, I’ll still read it; I just won’t look any further into its author or its series.

But then there’s the occasional book that I dislike so much, I stop reading it. Nothing to do with time constraints. Nothing to do with reading another book. No. As in, if I had to choose between sitting in a room doing nothing for three days straight and reading said book, I would choose to sit around doing nothing.

I Wear the Black Hat is one of those books. … More I Wear the Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman (2013)

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (1937)

This book was previously on my Favorites Shelf (both the electronic one and the physical one) with a rating of 5 stars. Though I haven’t re-read the book since first giving it that rating, I’ve simply taken more time to observe and consider the book’s later effects on me and my world views. Since this is, to some extent, a “didactic book” (my name for books that teach), its effect on my mind and not my emotion or imagination are what I’m consider.  … More Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (1937)
