Giving up on the Read-a-long of Bleak House

I was excited to take part in Amanda’s read-a-long of Bleak House, but the book just isn’t drawing me in.  I’ve been behind since the very first week and it doesn’t look good for me ever catching up!  I normally just fail at challenges, but this one I think I’ll have to give up.  I have so many other books to read that I’m going to put this firmly on the back burner for now.  If everyone else starts to like it I may try again in the future.  Quite frankly, I found it boring and a slog and my mind wandered too much so I had to keep reading over what I’d read already!  I’d catch a moment of loveliness in Dickens’ writing, but then I’d just get frustrated all over again.  It may have a lot to say but I’m not sure I’m ready to listen just yet.
