What Makes You Put a Book Down?
GoodReads is famous for analyzing every aspect of reader behavior - from what makes a person read a book, to what makes a person put it down. Here are the results from one of their recent surveys.
These results should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, these readers abandoned Catch 22!! (I confess that although I finished Ulysses, I really didn't want to. Sometimes we persist with a "classic" even when we'd rather be reading something else. It's called guilt.) As for the top five most abandoned books, I put down every one of them.
