Mea culpa, mea culpa. I give up. I cannot finish War and Peace. I will never finish War and Peace. I do not enjoy trying to read War and Peace. I put the book on my reading back burner but it sits there on my night stand and mocks me. Life is too short to suffer reading something this unpleasant. Never again will I try. I concede defeat to War and Peace. I’m done. It won. It’s over. War and Peace is taking its rightful place in the Goodwill bag to terrify yet another reader somewhere out in Thriftshopville. I’m moving forward with my life. Be happy for me.
