There are two sentences
The book "was" boring for me. AND. The book "is" boring for me.
Are these sentences having the same explanation?
or, what's difference about these two sentences?

thanks

@lookup69,
In the case of "was," 99, might be more likely that you had actually read it whereas with "is" you might be still at it

Tense I think we call it tho I'm no grammarian by any means

@lookup69,
'Was' is the past tense of the verb 'to be'. 'Is' is the present tense.

The book was boring for me (in the past)
The book is boring for me (in the present)
