The concept of “binge-reading” is already familiar to many romance readers, but now it's becoming a mainstream book release idea, with publishers staggering subsequent releases in a series just months—rather than years—after the previous book.
The benefits of binge-reading include not having to wait for the next installment, especially important if there's a cliffhanger involved, not forgetting the crucial events that will affect the current book's plot, and being able to continue reading an author or series you don't want to let go of just yet.
The downside? Authors might not produce their best work, if not given enough time to write the next book in the series, or the books (and their spoilers) will be out in the world before avid readers have had a chance to catch up with them.
Do you binge-read? What series did you binge on?
