I noticed someone at the top of this page mentioned Robinson Crusoe. I've tried to read that book probably every 6 months for the past 2 or 3 years. Never get more than MAYBE halfway through it and I just lose interest. I really want to but I just can't do it. I was even more pumped one of the times because I read Swiss Family Robinson and then wanted to switch over to Robinson Crusoe and still came to a grinding halt.
I feel like a fat guy trying to do one of the final events in the Ninja Warrior challenge. No matter how many times I try, I'm just not getting up that curved wall thingie and I'm not finishing that damn book.
