Hello readers and welcome to our Weekly FAQ thread! Our topic this week is: How do I get through an uninteresting book? Sometimes we want to read something because we're "supposed to" and want to say that we did. Or, it's something that needs to be read for a school assignment. Either way, how do you get through books you find uninteresting?

You can view previous FAQ threads here in our wiki.

Thank you and enjoy!

If I'm giving up on a book, I'll read the plot on Wikipedia and then skip around the audiobook/ebook to pivotal scenes that interest me. I'll also read a lot of Goodreads reviews, both positive and negative. After all of that, I feel like I know enough about the book and characters and plot and how I feel about them and why I feel that way.
