Another week over and it's Monday again, here is the question ---
How much time (or how many pages) do you give a book that you aren't really enjoying before you'll set it aside? If you're reading it for a book group discussion, or for review, will you give it more of a chance then, say, a book you're reading for your own interest? Why, or why not? (courtesy of MizB)
Firstly, I only read for personal pleasure, so I don't need to consider book reviews for outside sources. In the one reading group I have joined , the Jean Plaidy group ,I'm certain this dilemma would not arise as I love Jean Plaidy books.
However if I did start a book and it was proving difficult to finish I try and stay the course till about halfway. If it has not improved by then, it's usually placed back on the shelf.
