The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week poses a book-related question. The hop starts on Friday and ends on Thursday. The purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers.
When I first started blogging, I was signed up for tons of tours. I would force myself to finish a book even if I didn’t like it – because of the tour. There are two books in particular that immediately come to mind that I don’t even know how I finished them because I disliked the books so much.
Now, though, I don’t have this problem. I will give it a chance a good little chunk into the book unless something immediately puts me off and there isn’t much redemption within a few pages. If I get into the book and I still am not all that interested, I ditch it. I feel bad that I wasted my time when I could have been reading another great book, but it’s also important to weed out the things you don’t like in life, too.
