UCBA Fun Facts: Are you a quitter?

Question: What would cause you to stop reading a book half-way through?

HeatherHeather Maloney, Library Director: Sleep and kids….I love both dearly.



Michelle Michelle McKinney, Reference/Web Services Librarian: f I can’t connect with the characters or plot or if it’s taking too long to get moving. I normally give a book 3 chapters to catch my attention.


KellieKellie Tilton, Instructional Technologies Librarian: Dragging plots. Or if I’m not in the right frame of mind for a certain genre. Sometimes I’m just suddenly not in the mood for a sobfest.


LaurenLauren Wahman, Instruction LibrarianIf the book isn’t catching/keeping my interest.  I used to give a book the first 100 pages, now, it’s more like the first 25-50.


RachelRachel Lewis, Technical Services Manager: Setting my book down and starting another project.  I do it ALL the time.

ChrisChris Marshall, Public Services Assistant: Can’t relate to the characters.
