How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?
I used to power through. I used to dedicate weeks to finishing crappy books because I felt intense guilt about not finishing a book I had started no matter how craptastic it was. But, lately, I have realized that I only have a certain amount of time to read all of those books I really really want to read and that I should not waste my time reading books I don't like. I also don't want to waste a good deal of my life being bored out of my mind. I instituted a 5 Chapter limit. If a book hasn't caught my interest by Chapter 5, it's not likely to. I also don't believe in not reviewing DNF'd books because if I hated a book enough that I gave up on it, there are reasons and I don't need to suffer through a terrible book in order to tell you why I hated it. I do state that it was a DNF in the review though but I will tell you why, in detail.
