So, if you come to a series late and all the books are already out and you’ve heard people ranting and raving about it and say “Fine! I will finally read the series!”, and you absolutely adore the first book do you:
- Continue to read the entire series until you finish?
- Space out your reading so it lasts longer?
Personally, I space out the books. I don’t like to binge read series because I want them to last. Plus it helps me to enjoy the series more, spacing the books out.
Here’s my general plan when I find a new series
- Read first book
- Go out and buy the rest of the series
- Read a couple new books
- Read next book in series
- Repeat steps 3&4 until I finish series
There is a slight flaw in my plan. If the series is longer than 3 books I sometimes forget to finish reading it … Or after the third book I decide to put it down for a while and then I forget what was going on in the earlier ones.
So I’m curious as to how you go about it? I see a lot of people taking about binge reading series so I’m wondering how many of you do this.
