Many had come up to me with the problem that books put them to sleep. I wanted to give them all a big bear hug for putting up with such nonsense in life!
My take is, life is too short to waste on the wrong books for you. And just like boots (yes, i mean BOOTS), there is a specific style and height that suits everyone. You just have to go out there, explore and find your style. And once you’ve found the right style for you, stick to it.
That also applies to books. If you find the book that you are reading is not interesting, doesn’t make you feel intrigued and makes you feel bad – by all means, stop reading the book and move on to the next one.
The key is to keep moving until you find one that suits you.
If a particular genre got you hooked, try reading other authors by the same genre.
If a particular author got you hooked, try reading other books by the same author.
That is what I do. That is what I do when I can’t finish a book. I would not read any other book by the same author. Then I would simply move on to the next author.
So that’s a tip if you are having a hard time finishing a book.
Don’t get too hung up on it. Just move on to the next one. Because life is too short to be wasted on the wrong books.
