Follow Friday (August 11)


Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen?

Not much except that I don't have as much time. I'm always been OCD when it comes to books. I have to have them around me or I'm not happy. I used to read more in the evening, but recently I'm just too tired. One of the only things that has majorly changed is that I used to finish books even after I realized I hated what I was reading. I no longer do that. "Life is too short to read bad books". I realize this now. If a book just isn't tolerable after a few chapters, I don't finish it. I've learned that 99 times out of a 100, that particular book either isn't for me or isn't going to get better.

  4. I don't finish books I'm not enjoying either. I usually give a book 100 pages maximum and by then I better like it!

  8. Very true, I've tried to read through books that I just didn't like. Having said that, I didn't like the first book in Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers trilogy but once I read the 3 together I loved it :)

    Here's my Follow Friday post.
