I’m sure I’m not alone in having a never-depleting “To Be Read” pile of books – whether it is books you have read before, novels weighing down your bookshelves, a never-ending wishlist, new finds from the library or books that have been lent to you!
This is why, last year, I made the conscious decision to ditch books that I wasn’t enjoying, whether I was a few chapters in, half way through, or even near the end. With so many books needing to be read, I decided to no longer waste my time on turkeys that I wasn’t enjoying.
I feel a bit guilty when I dump a book unfinished – but the guilt is soon replaced with pleasure as I choose a new book from the tottering shelves…
What about you? Are you one of those people who wouldn’t dream of leaving a book unfinished, even if you hate it? Or do you, like me, not lose too much sleep over leaving a loser?
