Too Short? November 12, 2009

Booking Through Thursday


Suggested by JM:

“Life is too short to read bad books.” I’d always heard that, but I still read books through until the end no matter how bad they were because I had this sense of obligation.

That is, until this week when I tried (really tried) to read a book that is utterly boring and unrealistic. I had to stop reading.

Do you read everything all the way through or do you feel life really is too short to read bad books?



I don't have that much problem with "bad" books. I always can find some good, funny, happy or silly aspects in them.

What really bothers me is books with attitude that is opposite or conflicts to my own. (Attitude problem, eh?) Most of the time I just stop. Yes, life is way too short for that kind of self-torment.

But recently I read one of those for work. I literally threw the book across the room 3 times, and imaginarily ripped it to pieces more than 10 times.

And NO, I didn't feel guilty a bit. :P

have attitude problem, too. and also have tendency to skim quickly through books that don't catch my attention. I mean, I just want to know how things end up, so, no need to read everything in it.

you literally and physically THREW a book across the room?! that was so cool!

but what if I don't even wanna buy some certain book in the first place but still want to throw it down, give it a few stomping for good measure, pick it up again then slowly tear the darn thing apart in slo-mo?

Q : Do you read everything all the way through or do you feel life really is too short to read bad books?

A : My life really is too short to read bad books. There're so many good books to be read. Why waste time with crappy ones?

Sense of obligation usually rules out the curiousity. Skimming makes me feel guilty later. Except when my patience runs dry after reading more than two unbearable books in a row. I mean, a bad one is more than enough. When, unfortunately, two or more cross my way in a row. Gosh.. I did enjoy throwing them away.

But later when patience returns, I gave it two stars. Still without guilt or any negative feeling about throwing it. It's so cruel to give one star, you know. Even those that I don't quite grasp their attitudes I still give two. If I give one star to any, it shouldn't be read at all, I bet. Usually it'd be the books with such a terrible editing, unbelievably bad plotting and characters. For anger that it wastes my time after all that I'd given this book a chance to prove itself. Worth one star or only half if I can, for the trees.

Terry Brooks once said that since you have already waste your money on the bad books, why waste your time as well. Of course, I followed his axiom and ended up throw away his Shannara books, ha ha. ;D
