My time's too valuable to waste on leisure books I'm not enjoying. I still feel guilty every time I delete a half-read book from my Sony, but I'm getting better at doing it instead of letting it sit there for months.

It is very very rare for me not to finish a book. I have quit on a couple I am sure but usually if I start it I finish it. (It might even be almost an obsesive/compulsive thing.) After reading thispost I look through my books and found a few I had bought and never read/started, but only two I had started but couldn't finish.
I have quite a few ebooks I haven't read even though I have downloaded them, most of them are freebies too.

Well, I threw the book into the walls a couple of times, but thinking of the NOK 149,- (US$ ~30) I'd spent, I finished all the 432 pages. Whereafter I *burned* the book. After that, I am *very* reluctant to "impulse buy" books by female authors, authoring "bestselling ghost stories".
J.K Rowling being the exception
Anyways, as others here, I may stop reading and then pick ut the book after a few months, finishing them.
