I've been spending a lot of (re: too much) time lately on Goodreads building my "library" by going through my favorite authors one by one and adding them in. This has forced me to realize several things:
- One, I read way too much. It would probably take me years to add in all the books I've read, and I'd still miss some.
- Two, the photographic memory of everything I've read that I prided myself on? It doesn't exist. Especially when most of an author's books are more or less the same.
- And three, my opinion of books tends to change over time.
But maybe--and this is certainly a possibility--my assessment of books has become harsher the more I read. I haz become jaded. -_-
Has your opinion of books changed unexpectedly over time? Do you think it's because your standards have changed, or because you simply forgot what the book was about?
