I’ve just picked up a book to begin reading for the third time, having read the first two chapters twice before. I just can’t seem to be able to get into it. I’ve read several books by this author before and really enjoyed them, so it seems likely that I will enjoy this one too. Or is that just being optimistic? How many times can you attempt a book, whether you think you’ll really like it or whether you have no idea if you’ll like it or not, before just giving up?
