Musing Mondays

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.
More answers can be found here.

I've got to check out some Jean Plaidy books. I've read book written under the name Victoria Holt and Phillipa Car and enjoyed them!

I read for my own pleasure as well, I give the book about 80-100 pages before I give up. I have only given up once but I have to start practicing this rule more often. When I force myself to stick with a book I often end up losing my passion for reading for a little while.

I know you would never put a Plaidy down. I think half way is reasonable.
