Let’s talk about DNF.
No, I don’t mean Do Not F— with me. lol* You horriable minded folks. I’m kidding! I’m kidding! No I am talking about Did Not Finish.
I had my first Do Not Finish. I must say I was really upset by this. I mean how does one tell the publisher “Sorry I did not finish your book“.
My first DNF was called The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond. Now I am not saying that the book was terriable. I am saying I just could not get into the book. I picked it up and started reading it and I felt the book had a good plot but the beginning execution could not hold my attention. Here is my message to the publisher:
“I really could not get into the book. I hated to do it but I had to put it on my DNF list. I really cannot leave an honest review. The book just started out really jumpy and confusing and kind of boring. Sorry. I will try again and if I can get into it I will leave an honest review. But at this time it is unfair for me to try. Thank you for the opportunity.”
What do you think? Did I handle that well or was I mean?
How do you handle the DNF’s of the world.
