DNF’ing A Book

I recently dnf’d (did not finish) two books and have been feeling pretty guilty about it. I always feel bad about it because I know the author put so much work into creating something and I can’t for whatever reason finish it.

In my mind I know that not all books and writing styles were made for everyone as we all have different tastes. I know this! Yet I feel this sense of quilt at starting something and not finishing it.

Do you DNF books that are just not clicking with you or do you power thru?

Until Next, Time Happy Reading!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Becky and I am a Real Estate Agent/Stay At Home Mom and I live in the beautiful state of Colorado with my husband, two kids, dog and cat. I am an avid reader and read on average 2-3 books a week. I started my blog because I needed a place where I could talk about books and put down my thoughts on all things book related.

  1. I have the same issue! I have gotten better at DNFing books, but I still have to talk myself into it . . . and I always have some lingering guilt. But yes, I am a firm advocate for abandoning books that aren’t working for me.

  2. I used to feel so guilty when I DNF’d a book, now I don’t. Sometimes I do put down a book, knowing I’ll pick it up again in the future, but now isn’t the time to read it. Sometimes I put books down and never pick them up again, and that’s okay with me! Life is short, I want to read what I want to read!
