I'm about as likely to not finish a book as I am to leave a bag of M&Ms untouched for more than a day.

Don't feel bad - nobody finished GRAVITY'S RAINBOW, it's the Great Unfinished Novel.

Actually, I did. It took 3-4 tries, but I finally got through it (on a bet of sorts).

I'm surprised you don't have more classics in here. I find it most difficult to read books I didn't get to pick out in the first place, like class assignments. That's what most of my list (Books I will never finish) is comprised of.

Well, I didn't take many literature classes. I could usually make myself finish the books that were assigned to me (the fiction anyway).

I have a tendency to feel guilty not finishing books - at least the ones that aren't textbooks.
