Abandoning Books

I like to read. And generally speaking, when I start a book I finish said book.

Sometimes, though, you have to abandon a book and that always makes me sad.

I’m about 100 pages into the book to the right and it is really well written (which I like) but I just don’t care about anything that’s happening in the book (which I don’t).

It is a pretty short book, about 240 pages, so I could power through. And I was going to do that, to be honest, but then I got a notice from the library that a few of my holds are available. And all of them look much better than this book and I thought, “There’s no need to finish this. Just set it aside, and all will be well.”

Sometimes you just have to stop to go forward.

I’m very wise.
