How do you know when you're too undeducated to read a book? When you buy a 2nd-hand copy of "Reading Lolita in Tehran" and 1/2 way through it you realize you neither have read Lolita nor know remotely anything about Tehran so how can you possibly understand this book?
Yeah, this coming from someone who would rather have a root canal than stop reading before I've reached the end of a book. That's how you KNOW I either A) am not into the book at all, or B) have realized I'm to miserably ignorant on current affairs to even consider finishing this book.
It's a sad, sad, state folks.
