Quote of the Week: Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl

“I don’t care if a reader hates one of my stories, just as long as he finishes the book.”
~ Roald Dahl

Friday I published a review of The Sun Also Rises in the post The Importance of Being Ernest Hemingway. I finished the book even though I didn’t enjoy it. I read every last word.

Why would I finish a book if I didn’t really care for it? Because I know how much work is involved in the process. It’s a labor of love.  It is out of respect for that great achievement and the courage it takes to put yourself out there that I felt compelled to finish it.

So what about you? Do you read a book you don’t like to the end or toss it once you get bored with it? Post your answer in the poll below.
