Finishing a book I didn’t like...
Sigh. We’ve all been there. We check out the cover and like it. We read the blurb and like it. We might even read the first page and like it.
Then we delve in and get going. After a while, something seems weird or off and we begin to wonder how is this going?
The first indicator. Hmm.
But hey, we persevere because we might know the author and his/her work and it’ll work out. Right?
So not the case recently for me. You see, I belong to a book club and most of our selections are different from my regular romance or mystery reading. And this month’s book (I won’t name names) was pretty much awful.
It could be me. Maybe I read too fast and skimmed something important.
Yup, good ol’ justification.
Because I read this book for book club, I felt compelled to finish. I want to have good discussion about it. And a tinsy-tiny part of me thinks I will learn something even from a bad book.
So weigh in—finish bad book? Or not?
