Honestly, I hate not finishing a book that I have started. That being said, I have had to do just that a few times in my reading life. I have mixed feelings about it even though I do hate the idea. This entry is being born out of something I was reading last night and realized I was just not feeling it.
I was reading "An Object of Beauty" by Steve Martin last night and had not gotten very far into it. I was struggling to even get the book going in my own mind and I was REALLY trying. Something was just not clicking with me, though. I love Steve Martin as an actor, and I am sure he has a wonderful imagination as an author, but for some reason, getting though the book was not going to happen.
This brings me to my conundrum. Do any of my fellow readers/bloggers/vloggers have this issue where they hate to give up on a book but there are just times where you have to toss in the bookish towel for some reason? I am well aware that it helps us as readers to finish a book, but I also believe that there is a point where, if a book is not entertaining you any further that you have the right to just not finish the book. It is something I am a firm believer in and would love to know other people's thoughts, so if I have any readers left, please share your thoughts in the comments below:)
