I’m starting to question this rule.
The older I get, the more I understand the importance of doing things you love to do, but not forcing yourself to continue with things that become annoying, frustrating, or just plain boring. Life is too short, and, like most people, I don’t have a lot of extra time on my hands these days.
Reading is supposed to be enjoyable. So, why should I force myself to finish a book I am not enjoying? The problem is we were all taught to “finish what you started”. What total BS that is, am I right?
So, I’m thinking of instilling a new rule. Maybe something like, if I’m not into a book within 100 pages, I’ll stop.
What do you do when you find yourself reading a crappy book?
