FF#2 - favorite vs mediocre?

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read weekly. You can join me and post the links to your own #FF posts in the comments below.

The question this week 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?

My answer is...
I'd read mediocre books. Maybe not hundreds of them. But I like trying. I read A LOT of books that are, in my opinion, mediocre, but they're loved by everyone else. Besides, sometimes among those mediocre ones you can chance upon a real gem! That's what happened to me a few times.
And to be quite honest, when I re-read (re-watch, re-listen) something a few too many times... I end up hating it. Two times, three times, five times is ok. But I wouldn't want to re-read my favorite book until I got sick of it. It would be a pity.
I'm aware my opinion is somewhat unpopular, but I'd rather do that than stick to just one book all the time. I like variety.  :)

So, what is your answer to this question? Would you rather read the same book all the time or try reading 100 others, many of them worse than that?

    You are so right, there very well maybe a gem beneath all those mediocre books!


  2. You study Korean!? 나도!
    Are you a fan of K-Pop and the dramas!?
    And, yes, I don't see how someone could read the same book over and over!
