"The first time I chose to not finish a book I was eight-years-old and quit 50 pages into Playing Beatie Bow, a cryptic and horrendously creepy junior reader about ghoulish little girls and time travel to filthy 1870's Australia. The accusing ghost of Beatie Bow has haunted me ever since. Now I choose more carefully and finish everything I start (and if someone could loan me a copy of that book I'd be eternally grateful)."
