Do you feel compelled to finish reading a book that has become boring to you or can you put it down and start reading something more to your liking?

I used to feel like I had to finish it. Like if I didn't finish the book I'd miss something, or I'd be a quitter. Then I read the Earth's Children series, and I just. Couldn't. Finish. Putting it down was so LIBERATING!!!! I couldn't read another page of hardened members or moist mounds interspersed with mind numbingly boring geological descriptions. It's the only book I ever stopped reading but I won't be afraid to do it again!
No way would I finish a book that has lost my attention.
My time is precious, and not for book's that will not keep me interested.
I don't know 'why' more people stick with it....only to be quite disappointed, after it is read!

I would rather watch paint dry.
These days I'll only do that if I'm reading it to review it. Otherwise, nah, life is too short and there are too many good books out there to waste time on the bad ones.
I don't read boring books, lol!

I would give in if it was too difficult, yes.
I'll usually leave it for a while and then come back to it at a later date.
Definitely not. Would rather read a book I enjoyed.
Mostly yeah, I finish it, but I don't think is such a good idea, because it tortures me. I feel like it never ends, like I'm reading backwards.
