DNF...Did Not Finish

In my high school library, I post a "Reader's Bill of Rights" (from Daniel Pennac).  The most popular BY FAR among my students is "The Right to Not Finish".  It constantly amazes me how often I hear of someone dreading to read because they don't like the current book they are reading.  How awful!!  One of the most freeing moments in my LIFE was when I realized...just because I started a book doesn't mean I have to finish that book (unless it is required reading - ha!)

I constantly remind my students of this.  It's simple.  If you don't like the book you are reading...put it down and pick up a different one!  There are SO MANY incredible books out there...find one you like :)
