“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” – Oscar Wilde
Do you get the message? It’s loud and clear. You should only read the books which are worthy of your time and interest. You should not invest your time, energy and money as well in the books which are considered as one-time reads only.

There is no debate about reading fiction or non-fiction! You can read anything you like. If you like reading fiction, you should be reading that; if you love reading non-fiction, you can well read that very much. However, the major concern should be the quality of your said titles. You must first assure yourself about the opinions of the readers who can be trusted. Nevertheless, one cannot assure us or dissuade us from reading a book or not reading a book. Our individual wisdom also comes to play very much.

Therefore, always be careful and wise when you are shopping for books. That’s not so easy as people often make it or think it to be. Also, you can think about buying the books on Sundays so that you have enough time to judge the ones by their covers and their blurbs… All the best with your reading job!
