Goodbye, Glass Books, May You R.I.P.

So, my second pick for the R.I.P. challenge was Gordon Dahlquist's The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. I checked it out at the library today, without even reading the book jacket or the reviews. If I had noticed how many times reviewers used the words "sex" and "erotic," I probably would have stuck it right back on the shelf. I didn't notice, so I started reading...and gave up about 56 pages in. It's just not my cup of tea. Since there are so many great books out there, it's my policy not to read any that I don't like. Therefore, I'm officially abandoning this one. Instead, I'm going to read J.R.R. Tolkien's classic Lord of the Rings for the Peril the Second part of the R.I.P. challenge. It's weighty enough to take the place of The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it more.
