I give books too much of a chance before giving up on them. Usually I don't give up at all, and then I complain. After 35 pages of "The City Man" by Rachel Rivers-Coffey, I just was not into it. It was about a New York couple expecting a baby, while the woman's father was ill. I glanced at the rest and it didn't look any better. So I stopped. It'll go to the laundry room bookshelf, where one of my neighbors might appreciate it more than I did.

After writing this, I wondered if the author might Google her name and see this. I hate to hurt people's feelings. Well, in this case, there's no need to worry. Rachel Rivers-Coffey died in 1999 at age 56, after a horse riding accident.
