Follow Friday!



 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!

Thanks to the fantabulous Follow Friday hosts Parajunkee & Alison

I chose favorite books, but I also agree with what you're saying when you don't want to burn them out. I love Hex Hall and Harry Potter, as well.

This was a difficult question...I chose favorites over mediocrity, but I understand both sides.

I love when books become like dear friends. Pride and Prejudice is like that for me!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's nice to finally meet someone from Kentucky, that's a rarity :) I saw that you live in Corbin? I live in Georgetown. Ah, yes, Joseph Beth is great!

YEP! I'm a Corbinite. I've driven by Georgetown (can't recall if I've ever actually stopped there). But I went to college at Asbury in Wilmore so I spent a lot of time in Lexington aka the center of Kentucky. Spent a lot of time at Joseph Beth during college. It's everything that's right about book stores.

I don't know why there aren't more Kentucky bloggers but I'm always glad to find one!
