#MicroblogMondays 84: Serial
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
I am currently working my way through Ben Aaronovitch’s books based on a friend’s recommendation. They’re fantastic — Harry Potter for grownups. It’s a series, which is nice because if you like the characters in the first one, you know what you’ll be reading next.
Though I know that — like the True Blood books — I’ll probably take a break after three books to read something else, and then dip in and out of the series the rest of the way, even though I always start out with the intention to read a whole series back-to-back. I didn’t think about how I read series until The Paperback Princess asked whether you read your series back-to-back or dip-in-and-out.
I’m a dipper, but I’m the worst sort of dipper because I pretend to be a back-to-backer so I can purchase the whole series.
How do you approach series: back-to-back books or dip-in-and-out? Or does it depend on the series itself or the number of books in it?
