Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly social blog hop between book bloggers. There are two hosts: Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. If you want to join in, click on either of their blogs to get the details. The FF question of the day is:
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?
At first, I was inclined to say I'd rather read my favorite book (LOLITA) over and over. I've reread it maybe a dozen times, and I'm sure I'd get more out of it, and have different reactions to it, if I read it dozens more. But the sticking point for me is reading until I got sick of it. It seems like eating your favorite food until you can't stand the sight of it, never mind want to have some. It would be horrible to have my favorite book become something I couldn't even look at again.
Reading hundreds of mediocre books isn't a great choice, but it's slightly better than growing to hate my favorite. There's always something interesting to glean from a book, even if as a whole it's awful.
