When you have to read a book you don’t want to read

I used to think this was only needed for text books, but I’m finding more and more that I need to do this with fiction. Not that I think reading fiction you don’t want to read is a good idea, but sometimes that book is something you have to read even though it’s a struggle.

Do you have any tips?

This might be a challenge more targeted for book reviewers, but most of us have gone through some reading challenges in school. Are there tips you have to help someone get through?
