Do you finish all your books? And do you feel guilty if you don't?

I read this article at Lifehacker today:

It occurred to me (while reading it) that I rarely feel guilty about not finishing a book if I'm not enjoying it. I try for a while to see if it gets better, but if I'm really not feeling it, I'll discard it quite happily.

How does everyone else feel about this? Do you force yourself to finish or can you easily move on to something else? Do group discussions/buddy reads motivate you to finish a book you might have left unread otherwise?

I try to finish every single book. Although I have to admit I have quit on quite a few really, really dreadful ones. I wouldn't say I feel guilty over not finishing it but I certainly feel a bit weird, having books I haven't actually finished reading.

That being said however, it does take quite a lot for me not to finish a book.
