I’ve talked about the dreaded DNF before and in other forums have outlined some of the reasons why I’ve not finished a book – such as a failure to connect, predictability *yawn* of a story, or because (I thought) it was just plain crap – but what I want to know is if you have a “tell”?
What I mean by this is whether there are any warning signs particular to you, which mean the book will be a DNF or a struggle to read.
My clue to a DNF is when I ‘put the book to one side’.
I know if I do this and if it’s left there for more than a couple of days the chances are slim to none that I will be picking it up again. *Of course it sits there mocking me, but that’s a topic for discussion
with my shrink for another day.*
Do you have any tells??
