Completed: TBR Slash – 4 Neglected Books
November 18, 2011 16 Comments
Barely a month and a half ago, I decided to do a short challenge for myself. I had a number of books that had been on my TBR for a long time, and I had no interest in reading them.
So, I did my “TBR Slash” challenge in which I nominated 4 books to be read fairly soon, and I allowed myself to stop reading them if I wasn’t enjoying it after 75 pages.
I can now happily say: I finished the challenge! See here the results.
1. The Blasphemer by Nigel Farndale – I gave up after more than 300 pages. The book had 450 and I had enough. Here’s my Review.
2. The Lady and the Poet by Maeve Haran – I gave up after 90 pages. The book seemed too romancy for my liking. Here’s my Review.
3. The Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende – I finished this book and enjoyed it. It’s 4 star book, no review just yet.
4. The Human Race by O. C. Heaton – I finished this book and enjoyed it, a 3.5 star book for me. My Review is here.
Do you make yourself read every single book to the end? Or do you allow yourself not to finish books?
This was a good and quick way for me to get some books off the TBR that had been there far too long. The promise that I can put the book away if it isn’t interesting at least gets me to pick up the book, finally!
What do you do with books that don’t appeal much?
