Quitting Books

I've decided to officially quit reading Amy Bloom's Away. It's not that there's anything wrong with the book -- I'm just not in the mood for it. I will probably go back to it eventually but not right now. You'll notice I've read several books since I started Away, but I'm not anywhere near finishing that book -- in fact, I've only read three pages. I hate giving up on a book, but I'm doing that with this book for now.

It's been great seeing everyone's thoughts on this topic! I used to finish every book I started (I agree it's a school thing), but The Floating Lush hit it on the's so FREEING not to have to finish every book!

I used to feel I had to finish a book also. I've started a lot of books that I just had to put down this year. I always feel they're just not fitting my mood and though I mean to come back (to Eat, Pray, Love, for instance) I find I haven't made good on any of my promises.
