A WOMAN managed to make it through three pages of the book she planned to read during lockdown before calling it a day.
Emma Bradford bought The Mirror and the Light by Hilary Mantel because everyone was talking about it, but when it arrived was dismayed to discover it was both massive and about the olden days.
Bradford said: “I thought lockdown would be the perfect time to get into reading, but attempting this one just reminded me that books are heavy and hard work compared to watching Killing Eve on my phone.
“When I actually tried to read it I realised it was about kings and queens from ancient times, which is just the sort of boring shit I didn’t bother listening to at school, so I gave up after three pages.
“But I still left a good review on Amazon for it. It said ‘Makes a useful doorstop so the dog can go out without me having to get up from watching Loose Women‘.”
