What would you prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?
Hard question. I'm going to have to say 100s of mediocre books. That answers surprises even me. Lately I've read too many mediocre books and I'm looking for something to fall in love with. (Give me recommendations if you have any! Only true love books though.)
However, I never want to get sick of my favorite books. My favorite books, like Harry Potter, Hex Hall, Jellicoe Road, Chaos Walking, are like dear friends. I want to love and treasure them, not burn out on them. The thought of not loving these books would break my heart. I would suffer through 100s of mediocre books for their sake. They make reading worth it! And eventually, in the sea of too many blah books, you always find something that you love!
