Watched the wonderful film of the book with John Lithgow in the title role and gave the book to a charity shop, having read probably four fifths of it. Figured if I really wanted to finish it I’d have done it years ago. Life is much simpler now. 4 years ago

A couple years ago I got about 100 pages into it but for some reason I stopped. This time, I will stick to it and finish. My parents have two copies of it. One is really, really, really long. I think I’ll choose the shorter version. hehe 5 years ago

Poor Don Quixote has been sitting on a shelf above my computer for ages, sitting sadly, waiting for my triumphant return…
I think that when I’m done with my current novel, I’ll pick him back up. It should be appropriate inspiration for my NaNoWriMo novel, particularly since I wanted to use Don Quixote as a character in my story. I can’t do that without shame if I haven’t actually finished the book first… 6 years ago
After what seems like years, I have less than 150 pages left. I never thought I would finish this book. It’s supposed to be funny, but for some reason it depresses me. I will be glad to move on to something else. 6 years ago
I found another book to read. I didn’t plan to start it yet, but it was sunny out, and I was just sitting there waiting for the bus, and there was a tree to lean against, and one thing led to another and I opened the cover.
This may be okay. Don Quixote is large, cumbersome, and not really designed for carting back and forth wherever I go. This hardbound is smaller and more durable. It is my new “go with me” reading, and I will leave Don Quixote for at-home reading. Now I just need to get into the habit of reading at home again, instead of spending all my time on World of Warcraft… 7 years ago
I started this last week, finally. It’s been sitting on my bookshelf for weeks, staring at me, saying “read me, read me!”
I’m on page 167 now and loving it. I can’t stop laughing, although how anyone can recieve as many beatings as that unfortunate man has in 167 pages is beyond me. 7 years ago
