So let’s be really real for a minute. I think It’s pretty damn apparent that I am not digging The Man Who Laughs but it more could be that blogging about X many chapters per week isn’t REALLY working with this book so much as it’s slow paced. Also I have just been getting my ass-kicked in my day-to- day life with personal stuff and other stuff, so reading this book isn’t really high on my list of how I want to use my time and while I don’t get a ton of comments mostly, I do just get the feeling that no one REALLY cares about these posts.
More or less the reason why I do a few chapters at a time is that I’m a notoriously slow reader so it just made sense to do that way and it gives me content for a few months and content is what blogs need to live. But it’s a double edge sword, it’s giving me content but if it’s boring people then it’s no good to any of us.
I’m just really disappointed because I have wanted to read this book for awhile and I thought it was a good idea but ultimately it’s not working and I’m not really enjoying the book, I sort of enjoyed blogging about the lack of interesting plot but at 37% a little more than four things should have happen and this English Court stuff is dull.
So here are some questions, I’m I wrong and are this post working and enjoyable? Or Should I just read the book and do one post on that and watch the movies/mini-series like I intended? For the record, I have a bad track record of not finishing things so I do want to finish what I have started.

And then after that, two options, Read The Phantom of the Opera, which I have read before and is more enjoyable and it connects to Hunchback or take a break from books post for awhile and blog about a certain TV show that deals with fairy tales (you can guess it). Or something else, make a suggestion but please be serious about it, I’m not really in the mood for silliness.

This blog started four years ago today. Two years ago I wrote a retrospective and last year released a Christmas e-book, this year I have nothing except to say thank you to all of you who read and enjoy this blog.
I had sort had intended to write my thoughts on where the blog is now and the future of it but I will hold off on that for now. Whatever happens in the future though I’m very grateful for the readership.
Since I took a survey of Architecture once in college this clearly makes me an expert in the subject. Every Monday in September the Hunchblog is going to look at the building behind the book Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral.
I have decided that for the rest of the summer to suspended posting on Fridays Saturdays, and Sundays. So this means no more Fan-Art Fridays or Silly Sundays, or random Notre Dame de Paris stuff on Saturdays for a little while. I have been feeling burnt out for a while and feel the need for a slight break. I hope this break will allow me to get back on track with some better content as I’ve felt that my posts of late are have been lower quality than I would like.
