I’m probably one of the few readers who feels comfortable with not finishing books. If I’m reading a book and I can tell it’s not clicking with me, I don’t feel guilty about putting it down and moving to another book. Yet, when I don’t finish a book like that, I always struggle with whether or not to rate it.
Some bloggers simply mark books they don’t finish with a “DNF” label and don’t give them any star marking. Yet, others note in their reviews they didn’t finish it and still give it a star rating.
Both are acceptable, but I’m indecisive about which method I should use.
