Follow Friday #1

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

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?

Hard to say... but I'll probably have to go with... reading my favorite book over and over again until I get sick of it. I'd rather get completely enraptured with a rather familiar world than not get enraptured at all. Books are meant to take you away from the real world, so much so that you're suspended in another. If a book is mediocre, I'll never be taken away, not really. So then, reading becomes pointless in a way. Granted, I will get tired of reading any book, if I were to read it over and over again, but eh *shurgs*. I don't know! I'm an indecisive bugger! Sue me!
