Currently, I am reading a book that has had me near to quitting a few times. (Though I am now past the ¾ mark, so I am seeing this one through! )
So I am very curious: at what point will you quit on a read? Has quitting on a book changed at all over the course of your reading life?
It's very rare for me to quit on a book if it's not going well. I hold out hope that things will turn around, and my enjoyment will improve. I often have people tell me 'life' too short for bad books', and that I shouldn't worry so much on giving up on a read. So far, though, I haven't been able to embrace this very well.
I would love to hear about what you do when you are experiencing a disappointing book.
