One more page, one more chapter, one more book!

Booking Through Thursday 5/6

So … you’re halfway through a book and you’re hating it. It’s boring. It’s trite. It’s badly written. But … you’ve invested all this time to reading the first half.

What do you do? Read the second half? Just to finish out the story? Find out what happens?

Or, cut your losses and dump the second half?

——————————————–

Oh gosh. Well it depends. Sometimes I get stubborn enough and end up finishing it. Then I read other people’s reviews. Maybe there’s something about it that I couldn’t perhaps grasp or understand? but then there are other times when the events in the book and the writing makes me roll my eyes too much and I have to stop before my eyes start rolling into my brain. Then I know the story is complete garbage and then I start wondering how other people could like it. Then it goes straight to the library chute under “donations” :)

  1. I tend to start to read faster and faster, skimming along just to follow the plot. Sometimes my interest gets caught again, and I will slow down, but mostly I just skim along until the end, when I will read slowly enough to find out what happened. I guess I just can’t stand not knowing how things turn out. This might be because my main reading is in the mystery genre-so I feel some satisfaction just learning “who done it.”
