Our Feature – Farhana @ BookChowDown

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?
That's a tough one, let me see.... if I knew before hand by way of first hand knowledge, that the 100 or so would be mediocre, I'd want to  reread a favorite.  Why?  More than likely if a book is a favorite, it resonates with you on more than one level, the characters are rich and multidimensional, the story will hold secrets that you may not have found or noticed the first time around, making it even more endearing when you realize why you love the book and the talented author who penned it,
Yet, if I hadn't read the 100 or so mediocre books before hand, how will I ever know if  I like them, it could be that one person's opinion of the book wont necessarily be my own. 
Great question this week, Farhana!

  1. goood point about if knowing the book is mediocre beforehand. I read the question as if you don't know and you have to take take that risk and read the book before you find out.

  2. I'm not sure I would want to read 100 blah books either. But then I think my fave book would get to me as well. So I kinda tweaked my answer!

  4. Hopping through. I love discovering new books but I'd rather reread my fav if I knew that the new ones would all be mediocre.
