Turn off automatic recognition
As mikhailo has said, you probably need to turn off
In Tools > Options > Scan/Open tab, under "General" select
"Automatically process pages as they are added" and
"Preprocess page images". Now your pdf will just load and
wait for you to select recognition areas.
The second thing to do is to delete pages which don't have
any areas you want to recognise. To do this, select the page
in the column on the left, right-click it and select "Delete
page from document". This deletes it from the document
loaded into FineReader, but doesn't delete it from the
original pdf. Alternatively, where you have a page with
nothing you want to recognise, draw a small recognition area
on a blank part of that page. The recognition area need only
be 1 mm in size. Draw recognition areas on your other pages
as usual, and when you select "Read" FineReader will
recognise all the recognition areas (and only these areas),
including the tiny little box you have put on the page that
doesn't interest you.
I think this will give you what you want.
