Okay, here are some questions for you.
*How long (either time wise or # of pages) do you give to try a book before you stop reading it?
I normally have a 100 page rule, but I find that I have five books on my currently reading list that I am into more than 100 pages. I just can't seem to give them up and here's why. They are all either ARCs sent to me by publishers or egalleys from NetGalley. I feel super bad for giving up on them!
And I don't dislike any of these books. My life is in sort of upheaval right now (it's fall, busiest time of year, my back is in turmoil, my son is having issues with his Crohns, and a lot of new and great TV is starting up). So, I can't focus on any book and I am so tired in the evening that I get no reading done.
*Do you ever feel like you can't stop because it was an ARC you were sent (either as a surprise or by request)?
One of the books I am currently reading I practically begged one of my contacts for. I just feel like I am letting her down if I don't finish it. The others I don't feel as badly about, but I still feel bad.
Let me know what how to cut some of these books loose so I can move on to some of the awesome ones I got in my fall order for my library!
