Weekend Wonderings

I have been trying to complete a challenge by the end of this month and got to thinking, Is it really worth it to rush through a book just to meet a deadline?

Feel free to play along, just post a link to your blog or comment here and we can all wonder together.

For me, the answer is a definite NO.
The entire reason for me to read a book is to enjoy the words, emotions, ideas that the writer is trying to communicate to me as the reader, so rushing just to be able to say it is finished, defeats that purpose. I want to savor the book and try to understand everything that the writer is saying, so if it takes a little bit longer, so be it. I will enjoy the journey that much longer.
