What do you think of books that receive a lot of hype? (think of the “Twilight” saga, or “Harry Potter”, or“The Da Vinci Code”). Do you read them? Why, or why not?
– It depends. I sometimes jump in the hype and read them and sometimes I don’t. I am probably still one of the few people that hasn’t read the Twilight Saga yet. I have all the books now but just haven’t gotten around to reading them. I read the Harry Potter series during the hype and no regrets there. I joined in The DaVinci Code trend late but that was a good read too. I guess, if it gets a lot of hype I’d be curious and give it a try. I did try getting into The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I couldn’t get into it. I read the first few pages and nearly snoozed my eyes off. I am still trying to figure out what’s so great about it. Anybody know?
