People who say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” don’t understand how words can be stones, hard and sharp-edged and dangerous and capable of doing so much more harm than anything physical.

I'm going to work on it today, but otherwise I am still where I was before.

Good luck finishing the book :D
I read the book last year and even though it was a very good read it was too long.

Yeah, my slump has basically done this one in for the moment. Happens to me a lot, but I always wind up coming back to whatever book gets left behind. :lol:

Moby Dick is not an easy book to read. That's how I felt as I read the book. I think it took me at least two months, maybe more, to finish the book. But, to be honest, it was worth it.
Hope you enjoy reading it... :techie-studyinggray:

Thanks, but since it was a long time ago that I read the book, I’d rather wait till ya guys are finished. I don’t wanna spoil anything for you, but I would very much like discussing it later ☺️ :tiphat:
