“Life is too short to read bad books.” I’d always heard that, but I still read books through until the end no matter how bad they were because I had this sense of obligation.
That is, until this week when I tried (really tried) to read a book that is utterly boring and unrealistic. I had to stop reading.
Do you read everything all the way through or do you feel life really is too short to read bad books?
– Yes! life is way too short to waste time on books you’re forcing yourself to read! I try to give myself a limit. If the book doesn’t grab my interest in at least the first 5 chapters then I’m dropping it. Unless it’s a series that I really like, then I’ll have to force myself to read it. (The only one exception was the Blue Bloods series, which I dropped as if it was a slimy slug on my hand. That series I have no regrets dropping).
I have so many books to read, I can’t afford to waste time on books I don’t like to read 🙂
