Every reader falls into one of two categories:

Those who struggle through to the bitter end;

. . . and those who don’t.

Here are six books I never finished, and why:

Crime and Punishment (Scary!)

Atlast Shrugged (So What?)

The Red Badge of Courage (Chickened Out)

The Bible (Skipped Some Parts)

Catch-22 (Never Got the Catch)

1984 (Started This Too Late)

Exercise: Are you a finisher or a finicky reader? Write a page about the last book you struggled to read to the end, or the last book you abandoned. This isn’t a review or a report to your book club, just a way of finding our your personal reading style.
