Question:
What would your prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?

This is a hard one. Do I read my favorite book or explore… Well.. I can’t say I won’t read Harry Potter or Oliver Twist or The Christmas Carol or The Count of Monte Cristo and the Goddess Test series over and over again. I know I would never get sick of them.

But that wouldn’t stop me from exploring 100s of mediocre books. Who knows what kind of gems I could find there. For example The Goddess Test. I was weary of Harlequin books that I actually once said I won’t touch them even with the end of a 10 feet pole (don’t ask I got sick of them repetitive theme). My fellow friend ARC reviewer told me I should try it and fish me with the Greek Mythology it has going on. As I read through it, I am actually amazed how wonderful this new brand of book Harlequin is producing. Hence. Yeah.. I’d read through 100s of mediocre books.

  7. Great answer! I agree you can always find a gem if you look hard enough. If at first it just looks like a dull rock keep polishing it until it shines. New follower :)
