Don't start books unless you can finish them, you do yourself, and the author, a great disservice.

seriously. I'm task oriented. I hate things being unfinished...so why on earth am i not over halfway done with any of these books? Its a mystery for the ages.
the fact that i cannot stay focused in no way says anything negative about any of these books, or these authors. In fact, I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them--well actually, the jury is still out on Til we have faces...but I''m also only a quarter of the way through it, perhaps i should give it another 100 pages.
I hope all of you follow through on things you begin. Its a trait i am going to try to acquire pretty soon here.
