How many pages do you give a book before you decide to move on? I’ve heard 100- your age is a good starting point. I think it also depends on the total number of pages, and the weight of the material covered. A comedy that I’m just okay with I’ll likely still finish, just because it doesn’t take me long to do so, but a philosophical read of 500+ pages I’ll cut my loses and move on to the next book on my to-be-read list.
Do you feel you HAVE to finish a book you start? I typically don’t feel the need, but the book I’m currently reading I borderline loathe, and I’m still plugging along. It isn’t long, it’s a very simple writing style, and there is ONE aspect I want to know the answer to… so I’m still reading it.
Review to come soon, but this is easily one of the worse books I’ve read in a WHILE. Did booktubers get paid to hype this??* Because I normally agree with a lot of the people I follows recommendations, but this has been AWFUL.
*youtube policy is that they are supposed to indicate if something was a paid video, or they were given a book for free to review… it’s looking like that wasn’t the case though.
