Some books seem promising then you start reading and just can't read it because you either don't like the style, it's boring, it's crap.... etc.

you can probably go through your whole adult life not reading any books. doesn't mean that you should
About one third in.
I can only stand so much graphic gay sex and semen splurging.
Infinite Jest. I keep trying to to read it again and again but I always give up after the first few chapters. Probably read the first two chapters 5 times now.
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
1/3 of the way through
Couldn't connect with the story or the language.
Anti-Oedipus by Deleuze and Guattari
I want to read it but it makes no sense to me.
Walden by Thoreau.
Given up for a second time, even after skipping the longwinded first section.
Heavy horrible prose. Sanctimonius sarcasm throughout.
I got around a third of the way through.
I wound up so lost and clueless about what the fuck was going on and didn't know where I should flip back to catch up. I also wasn't very interested in the first place, hence why I let my mind wander while reading.
