As a book blogger my delight is to spread the word about the wonderful worlds that can be found inside the covers of a book. I love reading, and as you are now reading a book blog I will take a wild guess and assume that you love reading as well. I do keep track of all the books that I read through Goodreads, but I don’t review all the books that I read in the blog, although I have to confess to review most of them. Why not review them all? These are a few of the reasons why:
They are outside of the niche of Reading with ABC: I do review (and read) books from other age groups besides young adult, and I sometimes include adult or middle grade book reviews here, but if the book is more geared to school or work, I don’t review it. I’m not sure what my readers will think if I were to review a business book, for example.
Did not finish (DNF): I have too many books to read as it is (don’t even ask hubby, I think this is one of his favorite topics!); therefore I’m inclined on not investing time (which is a very limited commodity around here) in a book that doesn’t seem to be going well. Usually, if I can’t get into the story after a fourth or third of the book, I stop reading. I might Google it and try to find out more about the ending (just for my own information), but as I said I just don’t have the time to read a book that I can’t get into.
How about you? Do you review every book you read? What other reasons do you have not to? Do you feel compelled to finish every book you start?
