    I’ve attempted to read The Sisters Brothers 3 times before my attention flew to another shiny book. One day…

    • Hahahah, girl, at some point you may have to admit to yourself that it’s just not the book for you.

    I do hope you like The Sisters Brothers – one of my faves.

  • I love the cover of The Sisters Brothers!
