Giving Up August 26, 2010
There was a time if I was not enjoying a book I would push through to the end, no matter how boring, or wordy the book. I was always thinking the good part is yet to come, but, over the years I have learned if it is still boring between 50-75 pages, it ain't gonna get any better, so I abandon the book.If you’re not enjoying a book, will you stop mid-way? Or do you push through to the end? What makes you decide to stop?
If a book begins to get full of smut, or is to gory or bloody, to full of violence, I stop and throw the book in the garbage. I don't even pass them on to others. A boring or to wordy book I may sell to the bookstore, because, I figure it may not be boring to someone else, it just isn't my choice of reading genre.
How about you, what makes you decide to stop reading a book?
