BTT: Wish I hadn't have read that...
This week's question:
In the perfect follow-up to last week’s question, as suggested by C in DC:
Is there a book that you wish you could “unread”? One that you disliked so thoroughly you wish you could just forget that you ever read it?
This is a tough question! But, I've thought about it long and hard, and I don't think that there is a book that I look back on and say "I wish I hadn't have read that!" I mean, sure, I've read some not so great books (like The Shack comes to mind) but I usually get something out of them or at least am able to have a conversation with someone about it discussing why we did or didn't like a particular book. Also, very recently (as in yesterday), I wished that I hadn't have read the epilogue to The Host because I thought that it would have been better without it, but I still enjoyed the book as a whole.
I guess if there ever is a book that I really wish that I hadn't have read, I would probably quit reading it before I get to the end! Life is just too short to read bad books!
