Review: Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian

Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian
Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian by Avi Steinberg

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It started well and I was very interested in it, but ultimately I decided to stop reading Running the Books. It takes a lot for me to stop reading a book and decide that I will not go back to it. I read just about everything. Anyhow, a few reasons why I stopped:
1. Although the adventures were interesting, they were repetitive. I felt as if I was reading the same things over and over again.
2. Chapter 1 lasted 120 pages, which means that I barely scratched the surface of chapter 2 by the time I reached page 138.
3. I put the book down months ago with plans to return to it. I returned to it, but could only read it for a few more days. It was a sign that I really needed to stop reading the book. So, I stopped yesterday.

The characterizations were good.
