My Victory Garden is a place where I finally lay to rest the books that have defeated me so often in the past. Surely, most readers have these. The book you have picked up time and again, determined to actually make it through it this time, either because you feel you should in order to be a well-read person (like War and Peace), or because life has interrupted it every time you start it, or maybe because you liked it but it was too mentally or emotionally challenging for your mood last time you attempted it. Whatever it was that created the situation, I hate that feeling of having been beaten by a book that wasn't bad or not worth my time, but rather, just seemed like more than I wanted to take on at that moment. Since becoming a blogger, I've been rediscovering the joy of reading for its own sake, and in doing so, I am renewing my determination to finally win some of these battles. As I do, I will "plant" each one of them here in my Victory Garden, announcing to the world that I have conquered yet another obstacle, and expect to reap a harvest from having planted these seeds in my mind. Check back often to see if another book title has been added.
