Follow Friday (15)

Hi everyone! Its another Follow Friday (Thursday night) post here at Lost Amongst the Shelves. Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee and features up and coming blogs along with a book related post. This week's question is...

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?

I'd rather read my favorite book until I got sick of it. Even though I doubt I'd ever get sick of my favorite book, I'd much rather relive that adventure over and over than waste my time on a book that only leaves an impression of mediocrity.  Besides, if the book isn't anything special, then I just get this desperate feeling of wanting it to end and fast. That's not why I read. If I love a book then I never want it to end!


  1. Hi Kristan:)

    Happy FF
    I agree with you even though my post disagreed with you lol. If that makes sense..I would rather read 100 mediocre rather than get tired of my favorites! However at the same time I can appreciate your response too!;)

  6. I don't think I can pick an answer to that question. I'm afraid I'd tire of my favorite, but no one wants to be stuck with mediocrity. I'm a total cop out on this one, but I definitely agree with you about needing a book to be over fast if it isn't great :0)

  7. Great explanation for a difficult question! I get so bored with mediocre books that I chose to re-read my favorites over and over again.

  8. I think I'm the oddball, being that I don't really re-read books often... it has to be something really special, and even then? I have to wait quite awhile...

    Stop by and see my TGIF / Follow Friday for this week!

  9. Good answer Kristan, even if I chose the other option, I can understand why you'd want to keep reading your favourite book. It was a hard question to answer!

  11. I totally agree with your answer... reading should be fun not a chore! Thanks for stopping by my blog I followed back and entered your giveaway!

    Here is a link to my giveaway: http://www.epiloguereview.blogspot.com/2012/02/second-giveaway-ebook-of-become-by-ali.html

  12. alright that is a good argument :) I'd still go with 100s I think but you have a good point there. Some you just can't wait for them to end and there's no fun in that.

  13. Hopping through. I agree that I'd rather read my fav book. It would be hard to get rid of it.
