Do you finish every book you start?
Listen now
Do you finish every book you start? Why or why not? Some people feel a strong moral imperative to finish a book once they've started reading it. Other people will mark a book DNF (Did Not Finish) after a few pages if they're not able to get into it and move on to the next book. What pulls some people to keep reading a book if they're not enjoying it? And are people who give up missing out on a book they would love if they stuck with it? Do we owe it to the author to keep reading? And does the format you're reading in make a difference? Whether you're firmly on one side of this spectrum or fall somewhere in the middle, join us as we weigh the pros and cons of finishing (books, that is). Who knows, you might end up with a different philosophy by the end of the episode!  ----------------------- Books we're reading in this episode:  Romantic Comedy by Curtis Sittenfeld Marlow Murder Club by Robert Thorogood Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass series) by Sarah J Maas Beach Read by Emily Henry ----------------------- Intro and outro music: "The Chase," by Aves.
