Meme: Booking through Thursday


Welcome to my first BTT.
Todays question:
So … you’re halfway through a book and you’re hating it. It’s boring. It’s trite. It’s badly written. But … you’ve invested all this time to reading the first half.
What do you do? Read the second half? Just to finish out the story? Find out what happens?
Or, cut your losses and dump the second half?
And here is my answer:
That depends on my actual mood. AND if I already have another book waiting to be read.
If I'm in a good mood I'll finish the story - hoping that the end might be better than the beginning. Hope dies last ;o)
But if I don't feel well and I already have another book waiting for me I'll dump second half.
Luckily, I haven't had a bad book for long time. But that is coz I'll ask me sister to borrow me books. We have quite the same liking when it comes to books. So if she didn't like the book she normally won't pass it on to me except I'll really really ask her for.

So, that's my answer. Hope you liked it. Please come back if you find time.
Oh, and comments are very welcome!!!!

It totally works if you get recommendations from someone you trust.

It's great to have someone else to pick up good books for you. I'm less fortunate that way, and quite often pick up boring books and then there is the difficult decision of whether or not I dump the book.

Mood is a big factor for me too. Also, if I'm reading on a deadline, I tend to be less forgiving of a dull book. Pussreboots.
