I’m onto the 7th book in a series of my all time favourite books, written over one hundred years ago. So, what’s stopping me from starting it? Truly the most pettiest of reasons! Looking through it I noticed the introduction of a new character whose name is identical to one of the worst human beings I had the utmost displeasure of meeting! Having his association throughout the entire book, I fear, would almost distort its beauty and delightfulness: A constant reminder of them would be very disheartening.

No doubt I will start it, I just need to meet a beautiful person with that name.
