I have always read for the fun of it and because I love books. Period. Just because I now have a blog doesn't mean that my motives for reading have changed. Thus I have re-instated my previously abandoned 50 page rule. If I'm 50 pages in and I don't like the book in any way, shape or form it's going onto my DNF (did not finish) pile! Not only will it go onto the DNF pile, it will go there and I won't feel one ounce of guilt about it! :-)
I've come to the conclusion that if I force myself to read books I don't enjoy, this blog will start to feel more like a job rather than an enjoyable hobby. And that my friends, is not what I'm looking to do! Don't get me wrong, I will not write a review on a book that I haven't finished. I don't think that's fair, but you may see some comments here and there on my Goodreads status updates as I read those first 50 pages. ;-)
Bloggers and readers, what do you say? Do you complete every book that you start reading? If not, what's your method to decide if a book should be placed on the DNF pile?
