Giving up

In the past 2 1/2 weeks I started 5 books, but wasn’t finishing anything.  At what point do you give up on a book? I’m 136 pages in to one that I just don’t know if I want to finish, but feel like I’ve already committed a bunch of time to. Then I’ve got the hot off the presses Allegiant and I’ve had it for six days and only read a couple chapters. I couldn’t wait to read this but, like other trilogies for me before, the action picks right up where #2 left off but I read #2 so long ago that I don’t remember all the details.  Sometimes that doesn’t matter, but I have to say in this case I’ve lost my momentum and don’t feel that into it. Starting to write a post about a book I did finish and  according to my last post it looks like I haven’t read a book in a month!  And yet, and yet…I have so many books around me. I love to read, but sometimes I have so many books going on that it becomes a list of what I’m reading, what to read next, and how to manage my reading. Does that ever happen to you?
