Would You Rather Never Read Again But...

The reading world is full of hard choice: What to read next? Should I stop reading this book? Should I really buy my 30th title of the month... the feels excessive (never!)? However, at H&H we like to make you make the REALLY hard choices! So, in a fun game of “would you rather,” tell us your decision!

Would You Rather:

Never read again but you get to see all of your favorite books perfectly adapted into movies

OR

Be the fastest reader in the world but the second you finished reading a book you would instantly forget everything that happened?

Let me know down in the comments!

I think the joy of reading is remembering the emotions evoked during the story -- so no recollection would sort of defeat the reason to read. Plus while there are many good books out there, there are many that don't appeal to me as a reader . . . I would hate to think of reading a bad book over and over because I didn't remember it.

Movies wouldn't be the perfect solution --you're allowing someone else to put their interpretation on a scene . . .but at least you would remember it.

Sorry! This is one choice I cannot make. I'm taking my seven bookcases of keepers, my list of most anticipated reads of 2017, and my Kindles, and Wi-Fi connection and retreating from this battle.

I'd totally be the fastest reader - I already sometimes wish I hadn't already read a book just so I can read it for the first time all over again. Maybe just "memento" it to help me cull the bad ones out to save time? ha
Also - switching topic fyi - I stayed up till 1:30 reading "Kulti" (as y'all talked about in an earlier post) I feel like doodoo this morning but it was so good and worth it! Definitely reading more of hers. thanks for the reco!

No contest! I would 100% pick being the fastest reader everbut forgetting the book. I think I would always quibble over the movie adaptations, no matter how perfect, and I love too many authors to never read again. Plus, there are so many books that I absolutely loved the first time I read them and I would love to be able to experience that again!

Neither! I'm not a movie watcher so option A holds no appeal. I'm a speedy reader who already forgets details .... thus the joy of re-reading.

Easiest choice ever! I love reading and re-reading (and re-re-reading) but I've got quite a good memory. Being able to forget the story and discover it again for the first time would be marvellous. I'll have a "Men in Black" memory zapper for Christmas, please.
