Could you finished reading a new book every time?

Every time I buy a new book, I am always eager to read it in the beginning but always in the middle of its process of reading is just the thing that makes the books I read are not resolved completely. This makes me feel not fully understand what is conveyed from the book, and certainly this is clearly very harmful. Whether such incidents can happen to you, and how solutions to overcome them?

I read a lot, and almost always I finish the book. I usually do not even consider not finishing it. I have left 2 or 3 books in the middle during my whole life, and then it was only because the books were so bad I did not want to finish them.

I quit reading quite a few books. Mainly because the book was either poorly written, dull, or just not what I thought it was going to be about. I also get busy with other things and don't get to finish. My only solution is to go back to page one and begin again. However, you can't expect to understand every book. Some books might be poorly written or not in a prose that suits you. Some books might be over your head. It happens...we're not always as smart as we think we are.

I usually finish everything I've started reading... like 99% of the time and the last time I remember not finishing a book was more than a few years ago. Even if I don't like a book, I don't want to stop reading before I've reached the end. I don't think you should judge a book until you reach the end. Besides, since I started reading books I hate all the way to the finish... I find it much easier to concentrate on things I don't want to read... which makes studying for college much easier!

Sorry, I cannot agree with you about much easier to read a college books, because I don't like it at all. You must be a clever one.

It's something you have to practice. It doesn't come to people selectively based on how "clever" they are. I don't think I'm any more clever than most people. I just know how to learn.

I usually finish all the books that I read. I may put on hold something if I don't like it that much or if I found it boring, but I get back to it soon and continue reading where I left off.

I think it's a good idea, maybe i rarely finished read a book because of there's something bored or not interesting in the book, thank you..

I've read quite a lot of books and I've finished all of them. I make it sure that whatever I read is quite interesting and if there are parts that bore me, I read from a random page. I once read a book that was a sequel, compared to the first it was rather dull, I ended up skipping a few pages but I still finished it.

i was a bookworm once, before i had my baby. now i just don't have the time to read. but what i can suggest especially if you have time is try going to a library first so you won't have to spend on books that will end up unread anyway. and here's a useful tip: if the first 3 chapters of the book you're reading does not get your attention, stop reading it...you'll end up bored in the long run.. happy reading!

Maybe you should try the library instead so you're not spending money on books that you don't finish reading. There are times when I can't finish a book. Sometimes going back to it helps but some books I just can't get into. I'm sure to enjoy a book by an author I love but I do like discovering new ones too. Try looking for books that interest you. I happen to love vampires so usually a vampire book will be right up my alley.

Well, for me it's the other way around, most of the time when I start reading a book, it's like I don't want to stop reading until I finish it, of course especially if I'm reading a book by my favorite author. The problem with me is that, sometimes I even stay until 4 am just to finish the book, not easy when you need to go work in the morning.
