How many of you stop reading a book if you don’t like it? Do you always hold out in hopes that it will get better? How long do you keep reading before you give up? I am terrible about this. If I don’t like a book almost immediately, I will move on to something else. There are just so many great books out there waiting to be read, that I don’t want to waste my time reading a bunch of boring books. When I first starting getting free books from authors and publishers I would always read the entire thing, even if I hated it right from Chapter 1. I think this was worse for the people who sent me the book, because I would write them a terrible review, because I felt like I suffered through a high school class with a teacher that I hated who just droned on and on in a terrible monotone voice. UGH! Now I don’t do that. If I don’t like a book within the first couple of chapters I ditch it and move on. I know some books have amazing endings if you only give them a chance, but I don’t want to. It reminds me of this.
Are any of these books worth giving another shot? Do you finish every book you start?
