Booking through Thursday - Crappy Books

This week's question...

Do you ever crave reading crappy books?

My answer...

Interesting, but weird question and kind of hard to answer.

Of course it all depends on what your definition of crappy is, but, I can't say that I crave them. I've certainly read "crappy" books. I'm sure we all have, but do I crave them? No, I don't go out looking for one. I might find out when I'm reading it that I don't like it (Does that make it crappy? Someone else might love it.) I might want to read a "light" book, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's crappy.

I guess my overall answer would be, no I don't crave reading crappy books.

  1. I guess if I felt a book was "crappy," I wouldn't read it.

  2. It is so difficult to define crappy...

  3. I agree with you, I don't understand what is meant by crappy, do I crave crappy books? No.

  4. I don't crave crappy books. Check out my answer for this week's

  5. Crappy or not, it is based on somebody's preference in books. Everybody has their own opinions. Head over Clandestine Sanctuary to know what I think about this question.

    Do ever crave reading crappy books?

    Sometimes you just want to turn your mind off and be entertained. They're like romantic comedy chick flicks.

  7. I sometimes crave reading books that others might define as crappy but that I really enjoy - I can think of some romances that might fall into that category.

  8. Hm, sure i have read crappy books, but now I just don't care to finish bad ones

  9. My definition of a crappy book is a bad story that is badly written. I can't get through books like that. NOW, sometimes, I do crave books that OTHERS may consider crappy! For instance, I have a friend that won't read "those books with shiny covers." I'm not sure I've figured out what that means yet, but I guess if it has a shiny cover, she thinks it's crappy! But I might like it. :-)

  10. You did a good job with this question, Yvonne! Love the Lolcat!

  11. In a nutshell, "life is too short to crave crappy books"...IMO :)

  12. You are absolutely right, Yvonne. Crappy is really a subjective term here....

  13. I tend to agree with Karen. When I think of crappy books, I think of a bad story that is badly written. I love my romances and would never call those crappy. They might be considered "light" reading, but I wouldn't call them crappy. Besides, some of those "light" Harlequins aren't so light. There are quite a number that have some gut wrenching stories. I think they get a bad rap :)
