This week's question/activity:

How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through? 

I guess it depends on how much I'm not liking the book. I like to connect to something in the book ~ the story, the characters. I will give a book roughly 100 pages. If I'm *really* hating it, I'll stop. There's so many other books I'd like to try and get to that I don't like "wasting" precious time on something I'm not enjoying. However, that rarely happens, that I dislike a book enough to stop reading. I can probably count the number of times on one hand. I can be slightly indifferent about a book and power through, hoping it gets better. I find the older I get the more likely I've been to DNF books, though.

  1. I'm the same, I can usually tell by 50-100 pages if it's for me and will mark it as DNF if I'm not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I'm picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!
