Do you know what that stands for?
Go ahead and guess! I dare you.
I’m not talking about computer logic, even though I could, but not now. I’ll save that for a day when you are really bored out of your gourd!
No, it’s not Drake N Future.
It’s DID NOT FINISH. *GASP!*
As in I did not finish that book. UGH! I’m not a fan of DNF books. Usually I can push through and finish, leave the review and quickly forget about the book. But a DNF hangs over my head.
I don’t have many of these, but there are a few. I even have a shelf on my GoodReads account for those unfortunate books. It doesn’t even matter that some are in my genre of choice. My DNF are like a disease, no rhyme or reason. They can strike out of the blue.
Do I feel bad about them? I used too, but then I realized that I can’t love all books. That some books, characters, and plots aren’t for everyone. I’ve embraced it now and I move on quickly with a quick slip to the DNF shelf and onto the next book. Hoping that, this new book will over power that bitter taste I have in my mouth. I pray to the Book Gods and start reading my new book. Sometimes it works and sometimes, I just need to walk away and take a few days off from reading.
