The Question Club
You order a book, either buying it outright or waiting a really long time for your number to come up on the library's wait list. At last, the book is in your hands. You begin reading it and it is not as great as you'd anticipated. You read some more and it gets even more meh. You read on and it's actually starting to make you feel bad and you're wondering if you should have saved your time and/or money.|
How much of the book do you subsequently read?
A few more pages
I stopped before we even got to this question
When you finally stop reading this book, assuming you bought it, what do you do with the book?
Keep it for later in case I change my mind
Give it to someone I know will like it
Give it to someone I know will hate it
"Accidentally" leave it in a plane seat back pocket
Leave it in a Little Free Library or book exchange
Keep it for 100000 years until someone in the family has a garage sale
If instead this was a library book, when do you return it?
The day I checked it out
Whenever I happen to be near the library
After I get like six overdue notices and I owe more than the cover price
After I spill water/Mountain Dew/something worse on it and I have to pay for damages
