No, the books I read for my relaxation should give me a read pleasure.Usually I give a book 50 to 100 pages or so the chance to captivate me. If it does not succeed, it will be on the pile. Maybe I wasn’t in the right mood, or maybe it really doesn’t touch me. What can also happen in longer series is that I am saturated with the writing style of an author and the books have to rest.
A book that I have given a fair chance, and I really like it with about 40 pages of text, and that does not captivates and also does not imply enough promise, I put it away.Once in a while I read a piece, just about half, to see if there might be a bit of momentum. Does that work, then I read the intermediate piece too, but only if it seems to me necessary for the connection.
Sometimes, if for example I appreciate the writer, or for another reason again get interest in the content, I take it after a year or so again and start all over again.
A few times so an initially laid aside book has been read at the end anyway.The Bible is so one. Although I have never read from cover to cover. But by the lectures of, among other things, Marius van Leeuwen and a few literary criticisms, I have read them (practically) completely. That practically beats on those sex and names lists, which are only italic by struggling. And with my mild-autistic slant, I am also not devastated by Psalms, who are usually of an annoying slowness, with just a single beautiful phrase.
Other books that appeared to be plum in a second attempt include some 19th century novels, for example Trollope, who also spend a long time trying to get on steam, or who will become nice as part of a longer story.
If the reason I read it is a professional or, at the time, school obligation and it does not fully read can have serious consequences.
For the rest, I can simply and without guilt a book via air transfer to the corner of the room Keilen, regardless of the small number of pages that still read me remaining.
Why would you?Your time is costly and there is so much waiting for you. Books and certainly not just books. Plus: You may be mistaken, sometimes a book seems appealing, but after a while, no, it’s rather not. Or it is the style of the author. I have been trying to read David Chalmers ‘ The Conscious Mind ‘ three times now. I don’t know what it is-but I have the impression that he keeps spinning around the pot. I expect a clear expos茅 of your thoughts. If you always keep stirring in your mind, on the leaf, I find that you are confused about it. And I have little patience for that-if I paid for a book I expect insight, clarity. So back to the closet! However, that man is a (controversial) topper in his domain (philosophy of mind).
‘, ‘ I don’t do that.Luckily I don’t have exams anymore and I don’t need to talk to me about ‘ the last of xx or yy ‘. A book I read for my enjoyment and if I don’t have one I grab another.
“,” When it is written in a language that I have a bit of knowledge of (D/F/E) then I continue reading…
Light on where in the book I Am,
I had so much trouble with the third book in The Hunger Games series, the beginning could give me little care, but I went through anyway because I wanted to know the end.
I’ve also had books with a good start but a bad centerpiece, then I went on to find out if the end was good too, for me this was the book Mister B. Gone the beginning was nice to read but in the middle there was just a Dead piece.
Books with a good start but bad end I almost never read out completely.
So it is one question of where you are in the bstory.
