This week's question feature is
The Mile Long Bookshelf

How do you handle a book you don’t like? Do you DNF or do you power through?

My Answer: I used to power through with everything! But since I've been blogging and have so many more books to read and deadlines to reach I have rethought my strategy and I tend now to put them as Did Not Finish. 

I give each book 100 pages to grab me, if I am still really struggling by then I will give up (unless the book is only 150 pages in which case I will finish it regardless) 

Life is just too short to read books you don't enjoy, especially with so many fantastic ones out there still to read. 

Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D

Basically the same answer as I gave! I give it at least 50 pages, depending on how hard of a time I am having. Old GFC follower.

Thanks all. :D

Seen quite a lot say they push on, which surprised me.
As I say, used to be my strategy but just can't do it anymore, I have to give up if I'm not enjoying it.

Have a good week all.

I hate to not finish a book. It does happen occasionally though. I always give it my best effort before giving up.
