So, what do you do when the Book your reading is BAD? This is a tough one for me. You see I'm reading this book right now, the one that Oprah said "Might just be the best novel you've EVER read!" Um . . . not so much! It's terrible. Nasty & vulgar in my opinion. What could she have possible been thinking? So, what's the big dilemma? you ask. Well, I guess I'm the glass is half full kind of person, I keep thinking this book has got to get better. What if it turns out to be really great & life changing and I put it down too soon? So, I keep reading. And almost always, it's still just a really bad book in the end. :( I'm now just skimming pages, trying to get it over with. I don't have a lot of free time & I hate to waste any of it on a bad book, when there are so many good ones out there, just waiting to be read!
Recently I was reading another book by an author who I've read many books by & really like. But this particular story line just didn't interest me. I did stop reading it. It was turned into a made for T.V. movie, so I thought I'll see the movie and if I like it I'll finish the book. The movie was okay, but nothing that would make me pick the book back up. So I'll have a couple of books to take into Half Price Books & trade in for new ones! Do you stop reading a book if it's bad? Or do you suffer through? And how far into a book do you have to be to determine if you will keep reading it or put it down? I love the thrill of starting a new book! The expectation. But, I hate the disappointment when it's bad. I can't wait to see what I'm going to read next. It's gotta be better than this one!
