BTT asked: Which is more important? Quality for your reading? Or quantity?
My answer: Definitely quality! There’s no way I’d be able to read as much as I do if the books weren’t good. My definition of quality through is uniquely my own and depends on my interests and mood. If I’m not enjoying a book, I don’t finish reading it because I’d much rather move on to the book I won’t be able to put down.
On the other hand, I do love reading a lot. And I get a lot of satisfaction from the quantity of books I read each year. I enjoy trying to beat my previous amount and challenge myself to keep reading more and more. Because of this sometimes I do feel pressure to read short little books that I can easily finish and add to my reading tally, but more often than not I recognize the urge and realize my ultimate goal is to enjoy what I read.
So enjoying what I read is most important and both quality and quantity factor into that. For the actual reading experience though, quality is definitely more important and contributes more to how much I enjoy reading.
What about you? What do you define as a quality book? Do you also get a thrill from reading a bunch of books each month/year?
