Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading that I thought I'd start answering. This week's question is Series? Or stand-alone books?
I say stand-alone books, because when I read a book I want to be able to put it aside when finished and feel like that's that -
and I can move on.
With series, the whole idea is that I have to pick up the rest if I want closure. It's probably different if it's a finished series, because then you know beforehand what you're getting yourself into, but even so. Not reading all the books is like abandoning the story.
Then I'm also one of those people who feel like some things are better left unsaid. Sure, I've read a lot of books where I've wished the author would continue with the story, but part of the magic with books for me, is that I can sit for hours afterwards just pondering what all the characters are up to after the author, and I, left them.
