Like most people on here, I read foremost for enjoyment. Even when I'm "studying" I read authors whose work or style I enjoy. Also, I'm usually not a very picky reader and what annoys other writers don't bug me that much. For this reason I rarely bump into anything I don't like. I downloaded a sample of Tracy Hickman's and Margaret Weis' Dragons of Autumn Twilight: Chronicles, Volume One (Dragonlance Chronicles) for my Kindle. Later in the day, I put my Kindle down out of sheer frustration and walked away--my husband assumed I'd been strongly affected by the book and tried to "surprise" me by buying all three books in the series on my Kindle for me. When I sat back down and saw that all three books had magically appeared on my list, I almost screamed and threw it across the room because of how much I'd hated the sample. What am I going to do with three full books? My question is, would you intentionally read a book series you hate? Why or why not?
