I'm one of the few people I know that still uses the public library. I have a Kindle, and I have an Apple Mini, but I still prefer a good old fashioned printed book. Unless it's a big thick one.
I used to drudge through every single book I started. Sometimes, a book I had to force myself to get through made me avoid reading, day after day- because I just didn't care about it. Eventually, I'd finish it, and hopefully move on to the next and better book.
But these days, I realize, life is short. And the list of books I want to read is long. And getting longer all the time. So on the (rare) occasion I begin a book that I'm either bored by, annoyed by, or for whatever reason just am not enjoying, I move on. Even if it's one that was recommended to me. We are all moved by different things. The book one person- or many people- loves, may just not be anything that interests me.

Book abandonment. I highly recommend it.
