Bookfessional: DNFs (or Calling It Quits).

Bookfessional: DNFs There are as many reactions to DNF(did not finish)-ing a book as there are different types of readers. Some people will quit a book if the first few pages don’t grab and keep their attention, while others will stubbornly continue until they read the last word on the last page, even if any […]

Bookfessional: Classics I Have Not Read (Gasp!)

Bookfessional: Classics I Have Not Read (Gasp!)
