Lately it seems that everyone especially on the plot development forum writes or at least plan to write a trilogi or a series. I don't understand this, why is everybody so obsessed with series of books? It seems to be a very common thing among aspiring writers and I wonder why. I can't hardly even remember when I last picked up a book from a series. Is this a general preference among readers of books too or is it specific for a certain age group? Do the average reader prefer series and following the same mc through several books? I feel like the only one on here who doesn't plan a series of books or even like to read them.
