This is my first bookish talk, I think, so I don't know if this is a legit meme. If it is, expect an edit in bold below.
What I would love to talk about is DNFing. It's a big topic in the bookblogosphere, but how long is too long?
Are we being too frivolent with our DNFing?
DNF - Did Not Finish
Personally, I class not finishing a book as not reading it for over twenty consecutive days. If my Goodreads is telling me I haven't updated the book since June 3, I think it's pretty safe to say that I am not going to finish this book.
But I don't want to take them off my list incase I do carry on!
Of course, there is also DNFing because I just cannot read the dang book anymore. *50 Shades of Grey*
I don't usually do that because I do like to give the book a fair chance, but also I NEED to know what happens at the end. So I am a pretty low DNFer.
Thanks to Wikipedia, though, that has changed recently. Now if I don't like a book, I can still find out what happens, albeit without much context, and then usually I carry on reading. Worst reading habit ever.
I try not to do that though as I would rather read the book and be happily surprised!
How do you decide when that book is in your DNF list?
