So my section of the bookshelf dedicated to unread novels seems to get bigger all the time. I’m such an impulse shopper and that dang top 10 best seller display gets me. How do some of these novels get on that list, I mean really who is rating these? I’m kind of stuck in a book I’m not yet enjoying. I want to and keep picking it up hoping it will grab my attention. So far it has not. I’m ready to read one of these, any of these in hopes I will be more entertained. Life is too short for bad wine, er, I mean books..
So, question for you. When your reading a novel you thought was going to be good but it’s turning out to be a dud how long do you give it? Do you bear down and push through it? Do you have a formula that determines how long to proceed before “accidentally” dropping it in the bath water? Someone told me they minus their age from 100, if they reach that page number still uninterested they do not proceed.
Please leave me your thoughts in the comments I’m interested to see how many keep reading or close it and move on.
