"When you read a book that you just can't get into, do you stick it out and keep reading or move to your next title?"
My answer: it depends on why I'm reading the book. Life is to short to read something you don't like if you don't have to read it. Many times we have to - it's an assignment for a class, it's for a job or whatever. I usually give it the first chapter or 50 page test. If I'm still struggling by then and it's not required reading, I close the book and move on to something else.
