I have a confession. The title of this post is kind of a lie. I almost never stop reading a book once I’ve started it. First off, I am pretty good at choosing to read books I like. If I’m not liking a book or having a hard time with something, my impulse is usually to read it faster and get it over with. So while none of these books are ones that I almost put down (usually because they dealt with a subject I found emotionally difficult or I found them hard to get into), they’re all books I struggled with in some way, but am glad I finished. In fact, some of them are among my favorites.
How often do you put books down once you’ve started reading? Are there any books you almost abandoned then ended up loving? Let me know in the comments!
