    It has been long time since I have found a... 'Modern' book 'good'.

    I just read Penpal- and I found it... Better than expected- better than most other books of this time that I have read that have gotten similar 'high rating' from reviewers... But it wasnt... Maybe it teetered more towards 'good'... But it wasnt GREAT.

    The book that has gotten closest to 'good' that I have read in the last year is probably 'when a monster calls'(something like that)... And that was a childrens book

    Anyways. Guess my confession is that Im a literature snob.

    I DID enjoy- and WOULD rate 'GOOD'- East of Eden, by John steinbeck. But that isnt a MODERN DAY BOOK.


    I NEED a GOOD modern day book.

    So Im a pretentious book snob.

    Iconfess.

    I do- though I didnt think the graveyard book was... I mean, it was ok reaching towards good but that ending just... It ruined its chances for me.

    But coraline- coraline is closer.

    I havent read anything else from him but perhaps I might catch something 'good' if I do.

    Itll probably be 'library time' for me in a few days- so Ill keep him in mind.

    I am curious...why is it too free? Do people take it as too blunt or do their feelings get hurt? I am just curious about it from the Te perspective. It always feels familiar but alien to me.

    I try to be open and adaptable but I am still a bit cautious with boundaries. I wish I could be free to say whatever the heck I am thinking but my mind tends to default to the socially appropriate diplomatic approach. It sucks... Dang it.

    I think other people have an image in their heads of what it means to be "forthright" and that image is not in sync with what it means for Te folks to be "forthright". Like, we're forthright all the time, but everyone is always holding SOMETHING back, right? So if Te folks are starting from a baseline of being forthright, and then are asked to be more so?

    It's kind of disheartening to always end up in that situation. Part of the trend I've noticed, of ExTx folks tending to be bulls in china shops. But I can't expect others to adapt to me, especially if they don't know me well. So either this continues, or I'm the one who has to adapt.

    I dont think there's anything wrong with that to be truthful.
