At What Point Do You Give Up on A Book?

Have you ever been reading a book that you weren’t enjoying but weren’t sure if you should stop reading it?

I’ve read a few books like that. I always feel bad giving up on a book; but why should you spend time reading something you don’t like when there are so many good books out there?

Before stopping a book I always try to get at least 50-100 pages in. Some books are slow to start and then get rather good. Sometimes I give up on a book because the plot is dull, other times it’s due to poor writing/editing. Then there have been books that didn’t seem to be saying anything, or were just reiterating the same thing over and over, drawing it out for 200+ pages.

What books have you giving up on? What made you give up on them?
