OK, I am an avid reader. I have said that I read more than 52 books per year. I also stop reading a lot of books. (no, they don’t count on the books read if I don’t finish them)
I am also a Writer. As a writer, I love that you grab my book and read it, but please, if you are not enjoying the book, don’t finish it. There are so many books out there.
Read with passion, read for pleasure, but don’t read books that you don’t enjoy and are not good for you. Even famous books. Only finish books that are going to ignite your passion to read and the pleasure of the activity.
i.e. One of my best friends never finish my second novel. The topic, the action, the speed wasn’t her style. I was so happy when she told me that she could not finish it because she wasn’t enjoying the book. She instead picked a book that she enjoy and loved. It had nothing to do with my book, or the story. Books are personal, and the relationship with them is too. So if the book is a NO, do NOT finish it!
