Do you take breaks while reading a book? Or read it straight through? (And, by breaks, I don’t mean sleeping, eating and going to work; I mean putting it aside for a time while you read something else.)
I have been married for 22 years, so I am loyal in my relationships, but I am a promiscuous reader. ;-)
If I start getting bored or irritated by a character, I won't dump the book, but I may put it aside, start another book, maybe two or three other books, and let the first book rest. I had a running joke with one of my teacher friends. She and I would go to conferences together every couple of years and I always carried the same book for about six years. It was a slim book too, but I never unpacked it from my suitcase, so I only read it when we traveled. It had nothing to do with the quality of the book, just the fact that I didn't get out much. The name of the book?
The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
I guess that makes me a book tramp. How about you? To play along, go to Booking Through Thursday.
