We picked up a book to read.
Now we don’t quite enjoy it.
However, if we leave it midway, guilt quickly jumps in.

Should we finish it up or read it fully?

The guilt works strangely. Instead of making us decide, it makes us give up on reading all together. 

What if we kept the books down if they took away our interest?
Or perhaps we skimmed through it?
Or read between the pages about what piqued our interest?

The best relationships with books are give and take.
We give them our time and they keep us hooked to read them.
