Booking Through Thursday: Crappy

Do you ever crave reading crappy books?

Short answer:

Uh ... no. Why would I do that?

Longer answer:

Sometimes I enjoy reading thrillers that some people would regard as trashy. (Dan Brown might not be the world’s greatest writer, but his books are fun.) But that’s other people’s definition of crappy, not mine. And I’ve got much better things to do with my time than read books I think are crappy. Sure, they’re fun to trash in the review, but I’m less inclined now to finish bad books than I used to be. (A sign of advancing age perhaps, if I can use such an excuse at 26.)

I’d much rather read good books than bad ones!


  1. I don't crave crappy books. Check out my answer for this week's
    Booking Through Thursday.

  2. Crappy or not, it is based on somebody's preference in books. Everybody has their own opinions. Head over Clandestine Sanctuary to know what I think about this question.

    Do ever crave reading crappy books?

    Sometimes you just want to turn your mind off and be entertained. They're like romantic comedy chick flicks.

  4. Good answer! And I'm glad to find someone else who thinks Dan Brown's books are fun.

  5. I agree with Tribute Books Mama--sometimes I just want to be entertained. It did take me longer to come to the conclusion I didn't have to finish poorly written books. That light didn't come on until I hit 50. What a relief!
