Booking Through Thursday

So … you’re halfway through a book and you’re hating it. It’s boring. It’s trite. It’s badly written. But … you’ve invested all this time to reading the first half.

What do you do? Read the second half? Just to finish out the story? Find out what happens?

Or, cut your losses and dump the second half?

Before I start to read a book, I usually research it enough to avoid just this kind of situation. I’m likely to dump it; I’d glance at the ending and then choose another book.
