My aunt lent me her copy of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and I've been trying to read it for a while now. I started it about six months ago, and got to the second page. But then a chick lit caught my attention and I dropped it to read that chick lit. And then a few months later I tried reading it again, got to the third page, but then wasn't in the mood to read at all, so I stopped.

I started it last week again, got to the third page, but then this book from the library came in so I read that library book instead. For some reason, I just can't bring myself to read The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It's not that it's bad...I just get distracted from it so easily. The author uses a bunch of words that I've never even heard of before, have no clue how to pronounce (and I'm actually wondering if they're even English...), and the names are so hard to pronounce.

But at the same time, I've heard that it's a really good book. And it would be so embarrassing to just give the book back to my aunt after more than 6 months of having it. She'll ask me how it was and I'll just be like, "Oh, yeah...I didn't really read it." I can just imagine the disapproving look she'll give me every time any book is brought up.
Dilemma, dilemma. Sigh.

Anyone read that book?

I haven't read it although I have heard a lot of it. I usually only read YA books :)
