It's not about reading to impress anyone else.  It's about reading for the sheer enjoyment of it all...

I Know It's a "Classic", But...

The legend of Sleepy Hollow - Washington Irving

I found this very disappointing and really struggled to keep going for all 47 pages.  For a short story, it was long-winded and overstuffed with huge descriptiveness but very little actual action.  And not in the least bit scary.  I'm probably the only person in the whole wide world who didn't like this one.  I appreciate that it's a classic, I respect the vocabulary and writing style of Washington Irving...  but I give this one a thumb's down.  Blah.
