About a month ago I started reading Andrew Solomon's book Far from the Tree, and while I loved it, I wasn't making much progress. This book is thick and heavy and impossible to read in bed, where I get most of my reading done. So it sat languishing on the bedside table until I had that eureka moment. Cut it in half. Sounds simple but it took more that a few days to get up the courage to desecrate a book; you never harm a book was how I was brought up. Loved the book, I highly recommend it; and the above method if you, like me, like to read in bed.
