DNFing (Did Not Finish)….I have only DNFed 3 books in my entire lifetime, but it may soon become 4…. Ugh!
Alright! Opinions on this please!
We all have weird reading quirks. One of my BIGGEST reading quirks is that……
I just can’t put a book down, no matter how much I may not be enjoying it. I feel that I HAVE to finish it.
I find this so frustrating and I just can’t seem to get past it. I mean why read something you’re not enjoying. It’s a waste of your time, and there are so many other books sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Books that I am dying to get to!
I tell myself this every time I am not enjoying a book as much as I was hoping for. But of course I have the little voice in the back of my head saying “Yes, but so many people absolutely loved this book.” “What if you put it down and it only gets better from here and you will never know!”
I can’t be the only one out there like this .. RIGHT?!?!?!
Books need to captivate me from the start. If I am 100+ pages into a book and I am still not enjoying it, why push through it?
I bring this topic up a lot, and I usually hear the same thing. “Just put it down,” “Don’t waste your time, there are so many books to read out there. Read something you WILL enjoy,” “Life is short, don’t waste it reading a bad book,” “Put it down, maybe you’re not in the mood for that read and will pick it back up later.”
This is all great advice!. But of course, me and my stubborn brain just wont let go!
Thank you for reading! So happy to have you hear. And of course, please leave me a comment. Do you have this same reading quirk? Am I crazy? Do you have any tips on this topic? I would love to hear it all
You can find MAGIC wherever you LOOK. Sit back and relax all you need is a BOOK!
