Booking Through Thursday [11.12.09]
Do you read everything all the way through or do you feel life really is too short to read bad books?
Since PH does not have the big libraries as they do in U.S.A, I have to buy the book with my weekly allowance. So I have the check first if the book is worth buying. But in the event that I pick up the book with good summary but bad content, I have to read it all the way, hoping that I’ll find something good. It would be a waste you know! Sayang!
Since it hasn’t not been a year since I started reading and collecting books, I only have a small collection and I haven’t read various genres. Among my books, these are what I cannot stand: The Great Gatsby and Jude Deveraux’s Secrets.
For the former, I cannot see why it’s still on the bookshelves on bookstores, why some people find it epic, and why it’s called a classic. No offense dear fans of this book. I just find the Brits better.
As for the latter, it was supposed to be a book meant to raise thrill and suspense, but I was not sitting at the edge of my seat while reading Secrets. I wasn’t happy and contented. It was too confusing. It had no flesh. I just imply didn’t like it.
Conclusion: I could put down a book only if I borrowed it or if I bought it cheap. The higher the book’s price is, the harder it would be to put it down.
