Ah. Yes, I did misunderstand.

I am someone who almost always must finish a book I start. I am pretty careful about choosing books in the first place; the books I can't finish are usually limited to ones that I try to read because a friend foisted them on me, or books "everyone" is reading, or--back in the day--books assigned in class (though one day I AM going to finish Anna Karenina ... maybe).
