I think you misunderstood me. I stop
reading books a short way into them when they fail to grab me. That doesn't mean I give up on them forever. I often experience 3 or 4 false starts on books before they "take." Wrong time/wrong mindset/mood, I figure. So to clarify my position: I rarely re-read books that I've completed
. I have no qualms about re-reading a chapter or two.
