Way Too Much Information!!!
October 8, 2017 12:43pm CST
I picked up a copy of John Kennedy Toole's The Confederacy of Dunces at one of our local charity shops. I chose the book because the title promised humor, as did the photo of the large fellow on the cover with a chicken on his head. I did not choose the book due to it being a "Pulitzer-Prize Winning Novel" because that award, more often than not, does not mean a book will be a great read. I was going to read The Confederacy of Dunces right away, but my husband got to it first. He says the book is hilarious, but he keeps sharing all the hilarious parts with me, and if I have too much information about a book, I will not read it. I have a lot of new books to read here, so I am good. However, I think I will read the books I bring home with me BEFORE my husband reads them. That guy gives out way too much information!!

@Corbin5 Usually, when people tell me parts of a movie, it just makes me want to see the movie more. But with a book, if someone tells me a part of it, then when I get to that part in the book I don't want to read it because I already know what I'll be reading about.

@moffittjc I won't even read the back of a book or the information on the inside flap of a book. If I know the tiniest thing, the book just will not be read by me. I can see why you would skip a part of a book about which someone has already told you.

LOL That's like my husband, with a movie he wants me to see. First, he tells me every last detail and how it turns out, in the end. This makes it easy, for Kharla to doze off during this movie, yet not missing a thing:)

I don't think he did it on purpose. He just wanted to share the funny stuff. I have to admit that I did tell a bit too much to him regarding The Power of One. That was one amazing book and it was so hard to keep everything to myself before he read it.
