Book Blogger Hop: May 22nd - 28th

Image
Book Blogger Hop is a weekly writing prompt hosted on Coffee Addicted Writer.

Question of the Week: Why would you stop reading a book? Too long, wrong genre, bad language, not what you expected, or something totally different?
My Answer:  Most of the time I stop reading a book because I'm no longer interested. A book has to be really good to get my full attention and sometimes I find I no longer want to read the book when it doesn't. I will also put it down if I find a book I want to read more than the one I'm currently reading.  If I find the characters dull or the plot uninteresting I most likely won't finish the book either. Honestly all of the above are good reasons to stop reading a book.
