Having trouble figuring out what to read this summer? I found this cool flowchart through Shelf Awareness, courtesy of teach.com. Check it out:
My summer reading began with Swamplandia!. But I have to be honest, I cannot get into it. I’m a little less than halfway through it and am so tempted to stop and move on to another novel. I make it a rule to not give up on a book, even if doing so is torture, I always finish a book. Now, as a super busy mom with a full-time job and a strict writing schedule, it may be time to nix that rule. I don’t have time to waste on a book I don’t enjoy.
Do you finish a book, even if you aren’t enjoying it? How many chances do you give a novel before you give it the boot? Or are you a reading soldier, trudging along each agonizing sentence until the last word, never giving up?
I look forward to reading your personal philosophy on finishing novels! Happy reading and writing!
