I love books. Even books where, quite frankly, I dislike the characters or the writing, I will keep reading. There have only been a couple of times that I remember where I have stopped and thought "This book is sucking up time I will never get back!!" and returned the book to the library. But still, I will skip to the end (horrors!) and find out what happens.
I remember once my mom and I were reading the same book. She was fed up with the main character's stupidity and stopped reading. What she really wanted to do was throw the book against the wall. I kept going with the hopes that it would get better. It did not.
This isn't about which books are awful and which rock. Rather, I find it interesting why people either choose to finish books, decide to move on to something else, and the reasons behind their decisions.
