What the hell am I supposed to do with that book?

Itís on my windowsill, only the first few pages attempted. Itís decorative now, which is possibly the biggest insult I can bestow on my books. Itís wedged in between The Corrections and Life of Pi, two notable, high-profile tomes that failed to capture my attention, my imagination.

Not to say that this book didnít have a certain pull, but itís not the book itself thatís keeping me at bay; itís the flyleaf hand-written inscription that tells me, every time I open it, that all it ever was, was decorative.
