Discussion Question: At what point do you give up on a book? (TSS)

So I am reading a book right now and I'm really not digging it.  The characters are shallow, the plot is slow, and it's salacious beyond my usual tolerance level.  I will probably toss it aside, because it is just not worth the effort of completion.  

Are you the sort of person who always finishes a book you start?
If not, do you have a certain cut-off point?  Like, "Oh, I'll read until 100 pages just in case it gets better" or "That one sex scene may have been too explicit, but unless there's another one like it the book's OK."
