Feature and Follow Friday #84

Posted August 2, 2013 by Liza in Follow Friday / 3 Comments

Feature and Follow Friday is an awesome blog-hop hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read

And the question is: 

How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

Once upon a time, before I became a blogger, I would power through and finish the book.  Now I have too many books to read and too little time to read them, thus I DNF.  If I’m interesting in the ending I might Goggle the book or look for reviews with spoilers in Goodreads.

Sometimes though, I just lose interest or patience with a book because things are going too slow or I do not like the direction that the plot is going towards (like watching a movie when the girl goes off into the woods to investigate a sound).  In those cases I would likely come back and finish the book later.

How about you?  Do you feel that you have to finish the book at all costs or do you DNF?

  1. Usually I will give a book 50-100 pages before I DNF if I’m not enjoying it. I used to power through but I no longer have the time and it turned reading into a chore. There are too many books on my tbr pile for me to feel guilty and I’m picky about what I read, so only have 1 DNF so far!
