Reading a book is like going on a date. You don’t know if it’ll work out.
Sure, the book cover is interesting and the blurb is intriguing, but you really don’t know if you’ll make it to the end.
Despite this foreknowledge, I still suffer from quitter’s guilt whenever I ditch a book.
My fun reading time is limited now, so if a book doesn’t keep my attention, I move on.
I ditched 2 books this week because they were not working out for me….and felt terrible!
My goal, though, is not to slog my way through a book.
My goal is to enjoy the books I read because if you don’t enjoy a book, the likelihood of learning anything from it is slim.
Can you relate to this dilemma?
Or do you have hard and fast guidelines for when to ditch a book?
