Over the weekend I gave up on a book. Usually I hang on to the bitter end, but it was just so boooooooooooooring. I got a quarter of the way through and still nothing had happened. This is one of the first books I’ve given up on in a long time.
Here’s why I usually don’t give up:
1) Out of hope. Some books redeem themselves.
2) Out of stubbornness. I’m not going to let a book beat me.
3) Out of respect. Someone poured their soul into their work, and an entire team of publishing professionals deemed it worthy. Even if I don’t like it personally, I try to figure out its merits.
So, what about you guys? Do you give up on books easily or stick it out?
