Follow Friday!

FF 2012 Feature & Follow #83

It's always fun to connect with others in this hop.  There are so many great bloggers out there.  Today's question:

Q: 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?

I would rather read my favorite book over and over.  But, here's the thing, and I'm sure you have found this too.  Everyone is different.  A mediocre book to me may just be a great treasure to someone else.  Because we come from different places in life and we think and feel differently, books touch us in different ways.  Who am I to say the book you love is mediocre?  It may not be MY favorite, but if it's yours then good on you.  Plus, sometimes you pick up a book someone has labeled "mediocre" and find a great treasure yourself.  Having said that, most people can recognize a fabulously written book.  It becomes a favorite among the masses.  There are many books I could read over and over and be completely happy.  :)  A great question this week!  What are your thoughts?


  1. Haha :) I actually love about every book I read. If it's good enough for me to finish it, I generally give it at least a 3.

  2. Wow, that is probably the best, most well thought out post I've read this Friday. I agree completely. Sometimes I read a book and I rate it 5 stars even though in the back of my mind I know it's not probably a 5 star book but something in it makes me fall in love with it and for me it IS a 5 star book even though others may not think so.
    Happy Friday!

  3. Nice answer. Yes, it's true, many times a book we consider mediocre is someone else's favorite.

  4. I'm not a re-reader. Afraid I'll miss something. I do kind of envy the re-reader because they enjoy it so much. Not sure I would.

  5. Nice blog! I would reread a favorite for certain. I get bored too easily to read through 100's of mediocre books.

  6. Happy friday!

    I'm a new follower!Really nice blog =)

  7. So true! Of course I was thinking that the 100 books were mediocre in my line of sight or whatever! But yeah, rather read a fave over and over again instead of 100 books that are just blah. Reading, for me, is about enjoying what you read to the fullest!

    Here's my Friday Hops

  8. I think that this a really understandable answer, even though I chose the 100 mediocre books. I just can't imagine having only one story to indulge in - maybe thats just me being greedy though!

  9. I have to agree. There is one book that everyone raves about. I haven't seen a bad review of it, but it took me a month to read it. I skimmed the last half of the book. I just didn't like it. I never name the book because I don't want the backlash. So what someone may love, may not be my favorite.

  10. I find that I am one that likes most books I read for one reason or another.
    great answer.

  12. Wow that's a deep answer. I can't read books over and over no matter how much I love them just because I would get bored, so I would have to choose the other answer.
