Books That I've Abandoned

I've always considered it a failure if I don't finish every book that I start. I have definately been rewarded for my perseverance and have discovered some gems that I might have missed if I hadn't kept reading even when I wanted to stop. But those times have been the exception rather than the rule. So my new strategy is to just stop reading any book that fails to engage my attention. This board is not a list of my failures, but a recognition that life is too short to read bad books!

Ice Age, by Brian Freemantle. I've been working on this one for a while. I should like it. I normally enjoy this type of book, but I just can't get into it. I'm about ready to give up on this one. OK I've officially abandoned this one.

The Saint, by Oliver Broudy. I think I'll start this one next. Two days and can't get past the first page. Life is too short and there are too many books to waste time on one that doesn't interest you.
