October Exhaustion. The classroom has sprouted paperwork piles like manila-colored fungi. Grades for the first quarter loom over my weekend. And yet I hop...
Thanks to Jennifer at Crazy for Books I can have a virtual social life, visiting other book bloggers over the weekend (in between sipping coffee, reading, and grading papers).
This weekend's question is: do you always finish every book? Heck, no. I don't have time for bad books--they actually make me mad! I want to read a book I can love, or at least like very much. Therefore, I have little patience for mediocrity. I always begin reading with the highest hopes and a kind and forgiving spirit. But I will give up on a book that fails to deliver. This is especially true if the book is poorly written.
If you are hopping by on the book blogger hop leave me a comment and I will return your visit. Perhaps you are a more gentle reader? I would rather reread a great book (such as a classic) than tolerate a bad book. I will read for pure entertainment on occasion, so I'm not being elitist--I just like a well-written book that doesn't insult my intelligence or my sensibility.
