Have you ever started reading a book but then realised you couldn’t bring yourself to finish it? Was it so boring that you fell asleep? If I start something, I like to finish. But sometimes a book is so boring that I can’t even force myself to read it I don’t normally DNF books, but occasionally it does happen.
I recently realized I just couldn't get through a book, which is a shame because it's by an author that I like so I thought I would enjoy it. I might do a follow up, half-review post but for now I thought I’d make a little infographic of the stages I go through when I’m reading a book that leads to a DNF:

If you're really not enjoying a book it's okay to save it for later or maybe even give up on it completely. Reading should be fun and if you're not having fun get a different book.
Have you ever had to DNF a book? What was it?
*DNF = Did not finish
