All other thing being equal, would you rather read a book that’s hard/challenging/rewarding or light/enjoyable/easy?

Actually I would have to say both. Generally I enjoy books for the quality and reward of the novel itself, and that can be either an easy or a challenging read. I don’t feel that a book has to be hard to make it worthwhile, there are lighter books that are rewarding reads. That being said, there are light and fluffy books that I read when I need a pick me up, and I call those my candy books – not good in large doses, but sweet and tasty in small amounts!

What’s the hardest/most challenging book you’ve ever read? Was it worth the effort? Did you read it by choice or was it an assignment/obligation?

 

The hardest books I’ve read are ones that I haven’t yet finished. There are three: Don Quixote, Les Misérables, and Anna Karenina. (Sense a theme here?) I was not assigned any of these three for school, but was intrigued by them and chose to take them on. I still own them all, and I will finish them as they are like a red flag being waved in front of my face.
