my bestfriend's mom has always said that if a book doesn't strike your fancy,
best not to force yourself to keep reading it. just put it down & start another.
there is so little time in life to do the things we really want to do-
why waste it stuck in the middle of a bad book?
and while i wholeheartedly agree with this logic, there is something to be said
about sticking it out until the very last page, and for allowing a book you
may never pick up again, come into your life and spend a bit of time,
lingering in your subconscious until a more appropriate
period in your life when its words
might ring true.
what is your rule of thumb for when you get to a
lull in your book-reading?
give up or keep up?
