Follow Friday


This weeks Question:

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



Usually, I try to finish it. If it's a book I've agreed to review, I feel like I owe it to the author to give him or her a fair review, even if I find it hard to finish the book. There have been a few cases of having to put the books aside, though, because it was becoming torture to even look at them, but those are the exceptions. I do my best to stick it through.

Your response makes sense. I try so hard to finish a book, but if I am not into it, it's just not going to happen.

I'm the same, although I did have one book received for review via publishers that I just couldn't power through. I think I made it past 100 pages or more, and I was still soooo bored with it. I just couldn't get through any more of it.

These days I have too many books to spend much time on one I'm not enjoying. But I always do my best to power through but I am not afraid to DNF. although I do feel bad.

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

I can admire that, although I'll DNF if I just can't get into it. Although if its a review copy I would be more likely to finish out of respect for the author.

Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I 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!
