Day 09 – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
Yes! I did not think I would enjoy anything I read at school - Moby Dick seems too easy. I wish this would happen to me more often, that I surprise-love books. I didn't think I'd like the Melancholy of Anatomy by Shelley Jackson or Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories to the worshipful extent that I do, but I definitely bought them because I thought I'd like them. Hmm. The answer must then be Raymond Carver. I thought his short stories, which I have purchased and reread, would make me angry. Then I read John Updike.
