Is it okay to leave a book half read? I mean, I used to get miffed at myself when I did that. I felt this guilt when I didn’t complete a book. And, I had to face this question quite a few times thanks to my horrible choice in buying books. But when I looked it up on the internet I found out that it’s not that bad to do so, rather it’s a pretty great idea. The thing is, when I leave an uninteresting book incomplete I save some time to read something that I’m going to enjoy. If I started reading it for pleasure and it’s not giving me any, why on earth should I continue reading it? Would I sit through a horrible movie just because I paid for it, I don’t think so. So, unlike before, I can now abandon a book and keep feeling guilt free about it. Although, I would try to persist with a book as long as I’m able to, because sometimes they do turn out to be great, but only in the last few pages.
